THQ have all but formally announced the end of the Red Faction franchise.
THQ CEO Brian Farrell told investors this morning that the company will now longer push the franchise forward in any sort of “meaningful” way.
“Given that that title, now in two successive versions, has just found a niche, we do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way.”
Farrell described the last two installments in the series, Guerrilla and this year’s Armageddon as only appealing to ‘niche’ consumers, with poor sales reinforcing the decision to essentially shelf the franchise.
This is the end of you old red. Thanks for the memories.
