Over the weekend rumors were running rampant all over the ‘Twitterverse’ of THQ cancelling their 2014 line-up (Including the anticipated Warhammer MMO) and searching for a buyer. It’s no secret that the state of the company could be better, but THQ representatives are quick to ensure us that they have made no such move as to cancel any titles.
“THQ has not cancelled its 2014 line-up, and has not made any decisions regarding the planned MMO. As part of the ongoing review of our business, we have made decisions to ensure that the company is strategically addressing the most attractive markets. As we have previously announced, we have dramatically reduced our commitment to the kids‘ boxed games sector which leads to a significantly more focused release schedule moving forward. Our slate for calendar 2012 and beyond is focused on high-quality core games and continues to build our digital platform and business. We are excited for our pipeline of original and high-quality content along with our relationships with some of the best talent in the industry.”
I’m not sure what to make of this, but I hope THQ remain in good shape nonetheless. It’s interesting to see that they are reducing their commitment to the kid based box games, and it may suck for a lot of people but I’m interested to see how their new focus on core games betters the company.
