THQ denies apocalypse rumors

Yesterday the internet was alive with rumors that THQ, the publisher behind Homefront, Red Faction, Saints Row and more was cancelling its 2014 line-up along with the Warhammer 40,000 MMO and putting itself up for sale.

Today the company has issued a statement to VG247 saying otherwise.

“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,” the company confirmed.

“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.”

However has cited sources in saying that the Games Workshop MMO Dark Millennium Online is indeed being offered up for sale. THQ didn’t give any kind of official clarification on the matter.

This means we can still look forward to distant THQ projects like The Devil’s Third and inSANE.
