God: The Game among axed Big Huge titles
With developers being laid-off amid tough times at owners THQ, studio Big Huge Games have been forced to axe staff, as well as cut back on certain projects.
Today, Kotaku reveal some of the games that were axed, including God: The Game, a new simulation for the Wii, as well as Ascendant, an RPG that was in the works for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
While there have also been large scale redundancies, the future looks even more bleak for Big Huge, THQ said to be seeking a buyer to come in and take-over the facility, lest they be forced to close it entirely.
Ascendant looks rather good, too, if the screenshots are anything to go by.
