THQ kills the Red Faction Franchise

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Following the poor sales of Red Faction Armageddon, THQ has decided to pull the plug on the Red Faction Franchise. In an earnings call yesterday, CEO of THQ Brian Farrell said:

“Given that Red Faction, now in two successive versions, has just found a niche, we do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way.”

He also mentioned that team over at Volition, Inc., the developers of Red Faction, have started working on the upcoming survival horror game inSane.
