Hopefully someone else will publish it. I'm going to guess EA.

Wow, THQ is really struggling to stay afloat isnt it? Hopefully a publisher that can support and advertise it properly picks it up

I called this weeks ago, almost two months ago and I was continually slammed for my remarks. Several times.

Word took longer than a week because right after I was told, THQ started trying to shop the game to other publishers. They spent over a month trying to sell the project. First they showed it to Square Enix who passed and then they tried to unload it to Ubisoft who also turned it down.

Itagaki was burning through production money partying. Now he has a German Investor he is trying to get on board.

yah like WWE13 is any good for them.. THQ you are dead to me anyway..

The WWE license is probably one of the most prized portfolio holdings they have right now. Yearly release schedule with a known established brand that brings millions of "potential" customers with tons of advertising during WWE programming.

I can't wait for Metro: Last Light.

S**t. Devil's Third looked awesome. Really hope someone picks this up.

This breaks my heart :( i'm getting worried about Metro-Last Light.....THQ is just full of failure in my opinion....Devil's Third was gonna be one of the few titles i supported published by THQ besides Metro...

PS3-only owner, but my money's on MS. If only because Itagaki likely still has issues with Sony.

Not certain why, just know that at some point he was making active preferences towards MS. To the point his leaving Tecmo had something to do with NGS2.

ShaunCameron2200d ago

I didn't know that. I know Mistwalker does.

j-blaze2200d ago

hell yes! Itagaki likes MS, i would love to see this game "exclusively" on Xbox360!

They dropped it cause it's a 30fps Devil's Turd.
