THQ cancels Insane horror game

Struggling publisher THQ has today confirmed that it has cancelled upcoming horror trilogy Insane.

The first in the series was set for a 2013 release, and was in development at Volition. After departing THQ, the rights to the franchise have returned to Hollywood and director Guillermo del Toro, who was working on the game as a consultant.

It's unclear what this means for development staff, or if Guillermo del Toro will turn to another publisher to revive the project.

UPDATE 10:21 am: THQ says the game was in very early development and that no staff will be affected by the cancellation. The rights have returned to Guillermo del Toro who may do as he wishes with them.
