We've got more news from Financial documents today, but this one bring some sour news to the gaming industry. THQ has decided to scrap a few of its titles, and two franchises will also be wiped out of the development line.
Stuntman Ignition was released towards the end of last year and received average reviews from the media, for this reason THQ has scraped the series.
Then perhaps more surprisingly, its decided to scrap Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights due to poor sales and bad review scores. We haven't published our review yet, but check back soon to see our thoughts on this one.
So that's the franchise cancellations out of the way, but we would also like to report that Frontlines: Fuel of War for the PS3 has also been canceled; as previously thought. Disappointing but we've still got the Xbox 360 version.
Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy Unleashed for the PS2 has also been scraped.
These announcements are sure to displease some fans, but THQ don't want to waste their time working on series that just don't sell. We'll hopefully see some new IP announcements from them soon.
