REVIEWS Read Only Memories Review
The Kickstarter-funded text-based adventure game blows away most AAA titles with smart writing, engaging characters, and more style than you can fit on an NES cartridge.

THQ CEO Brian Farrell told investors that Red Faction: Armageddon "did not resonate with a sufficiently broad console gaming audience" and that the publisher would not "carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way". Farrell then went on to explain why:

In today's hit-driven, core gaming business, even highly-polished titles with a reasonable following like Red Faction face a bar that continues to move higher and higher.

In other words, it didn't sell well enough to continue the franchise. 

The end of the series doesn't spell the end for Volition. The studio currently has its hands full with Saints Row: The Third and is working in collaboration with Guillermo del Toro on his upcoming Insane game.
