Yesterday industry veteran Kevin Dent took to the Twittersphere, posting a number of updates that suggested Saints Row/WWE publisher THQ was in a spot of bother.
According to what Dent relayed, THQ has ceased working on the Disney license and has returned the IP, also cancelling the entirety of its 2014 line-up including Vigil’s upcoming Warhammer 40,000 MMO, Dark Millennium.
THQ has been quick to respond, discrediting the latter rumour and confirming that the company has a solid 2014 line-up in the works. However, in terms of the Disney license, Dent may have been right on the money; as part of an “ongoing review” THQ is dedicating less resources to video games aimed at younger audiences, instead working to fortify its core and digital output.
The firm’s tablet accessory, uDraw, wasn’t cited though we’re sure it has had a part to play in THQ’s drift away from the kids’ market.
