It’s been a rough generation for publisher THQ. The company has laid off numerous employees, suffered many failed product releases, and canceled several games. Unfortunately, another game has been added to the list of canceled titles, and that game is Volition’s inSane.

Originally scheduled for a release in 2013, inSane was to be a collaboration between Guillermo del Toro, who has directed such movies as Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth, and Volition, the developers of the Saint’s Row and Red Faction series’. The game was meant to be a survival horror game, and was set to be the first part of a trilogy. In addition to cancelling the game, THQ has returned all rights back to del Toro, which means a film based on the inSane universe could still be released in the future.
While it’s sad to see yet another game be scrapped, times look to be getting brighter for THQ in the near future, as the highly anticipated Darksiders II releases for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 14 in North America, with a Wii U version set for release alongside the console’s launch this holiday season.
