THQ has to be really careful. Probably saw it not selling as well as they needed it to

I don't think THQ have that much left to spare and this game sounds like it could have been a big gamble, they're on a rocky road right now and have to be careful what they do. Buuuut at the same time they do need to try and get some titles out there too, but it's the same kind of thing this gen has seen all too often, companies not very willing to give new IPs the go ahead since sequels seem to be what the majority of people buy.

TiberiusGill1419d ago

Agreed. They can't make every IP a chance-seller, but they have SR to fall back on right now. They need to test the waters with products like this in order to expand.

Saints Row and Darksiders are the 2 franchises they need to focus on keeping intact. Maybe eventually they will be in a better position to do new IP but for now they need to stick to their guns.

TiberiusGill1419d ago

True. Although I still wonder how much of a big hit Darksiders was. I'll accept that it's an established brand but it always struck me as weird that it's getting a sequel.

I'm betting the 3rd Hobbit movie, scheduling issues Del Toro, had something to do with it.

HebrewHammer1419d ago

I thought he has nothing to do with The Hobbit anymore. Jackson directed the whole thing.

BossPerson1419d ago

He doesnt. Jackson leads the whole thing

When then they probably couldn't afford the level of art, rather than game, he wanted to put into it.
