THQ No Longer Publishing Tomonobu Itagaki’s Devil’s Third
During an earning’s call today THQ confirmed that it will no longer be publishing Tomonobu Itagaki’s new IP, Devil’s Third. THQ CEO Brian Farrell simply stated that the ”profitability profile of Devil’s Third no longer meets our internal threshold.”
With THQ’s restructuring, it was cited that the investment being put into the game simply did not make sense compared to other titles in THQ’s lineup, the publisher noted.
The company hasn’t completely hung the title out to dry. THQ is in talks with other publishers about getting the game launched.
Devil’s Third is a third-person shooter developed by Valhalla Game Studios. It’s the first project developed by Dead or Alive creator and former Tecmo employee, Tomonobu Itagaki.
The game was scheduled for a 2013 release for the PS3, 360, WiiU and PC.
