THQ Closing 3 Studios, Lays Off 200 (As It Should)
Posted on Wednesday, August 10 @ 12:48:08 PST by Nicholas Tan
CEO Brian Farrell explains that this is simply cutting out the fat:
With this realignment, we are narrowing our focus to high-quality owned IP with broad appeal that can be leveraged across multiple platforms, and to work with the best talent in the industry. By right-sizing our internal development capacities for our console portfolio, our five internal studios are focused on delivering high-quality games with talented teams driving the execution of those titles to market.THQ has already halted future titles in the Red Faction and MX vs. ATV franchises due to poor sales, but this doesn't mean that they are on the way out. In fact, their current lineup shown at E3 looks beastly: UFC Undisputed 3, WWE '12, Warhammer 40000: Space Marine, Darksiders II, Guillermo del Toro's Insane, Tomonobu Itagaki's Devil's Third, Patrice Desilet's mystery IP, and my favorite, Saints Row: The Third.
If anything, this restructuring will makes all those games better.
