THQ to offload Itagaki's new title Devil's Third

Unforseen costs push Devil's Third out of THQ's plans

THQ's latest financial reports have come with a bit of bad news for those awaiting more on Tomonobu Itagaki's new game.

Despite improved digital sales and an excellent showing from Saints Row: The Third they have been forced to reassess their portfolio. In doing so they have decided to offload Itagakis' new title Devil's Third.

CEO of THQ, Brian Farrell explained that Devil's Third no longer "fit THQ's profile" as it required to switch game engines mid-production adding some extra costs that made it much less likely to turn a profit.

Farrell said, "When we ranked all of our product releases when we underwent our restructuring, the profitability of Devil's Third wasn't comparable with our other franchises."

Thanks Gamasutra.
