Pan’s Labyrinth director, Guillermo del Toro  was set to make his way into the video game world with his very own game named, inSANE but now that was all in the past as THQ have just announced the cancellation of their cooperation on the game.

Weirdly enough this is not del Toro’s first game, as his first project was a game called Sundown, which sadly also fell through in its early stages.

All IP rights have been returned to del Toro, who will be able to work with other publishers to continue to complete the game with some new backing.

Alongside inSANE THQ have also dropped the latest game from Tomonobu Itagaki, Devil’s Third.

The reason for the drops is that THQ would like to focus on their other core franchise’s, including DarksidersSaints RowMetro 2033,South Park, and Company of Heroes.

Which makes sense and is a good thing in my mind as I would hate to see games like Metro 2033:Last Light (one of my most looked forward to sequels), become worse of because of this game.

Check out the announcement trailer for the cancelled game below:
