Guillermo del Toro’s inSANE Game to Become a Trilogy

THQ has announced today that they have entered a multi-year agreement with Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) to create inSANE as a triple-A trilogy. The teaser we saw at the Video Game Awards really was a teaser, since it was more of an announcement. The game is being developed by Volition, Inc (Red Faction, Saints Row 2) and the first chapter is expected to launch in 2013.

“THQ is committed to creating great games by identifying the world’s most talented artists and providing them with the creative support to design innovative game play experiences,” said Bilson. “Guillermo is not only an incredibly gifted writer and film director, but also an avid gamer, and we are excited to bring his talents to our medium. We are confident his unique point of view will create visually stunning adventures, filled with rich and rewarding game play.”

Guillermo del Toro will act as external creative director and will be working closely with THQ Executive Vice President, Core Games Danny Bilson, THQ Director of Fiction Development Paul DeMeo and THQ’s Volition, Inc. studio for the trilogy.

“With this new series of video games, I want to take players to a place they have never seen before, where every single action makes them question their own senses of morality and reality,” said del Toro. “THQ and Volition, Inc. are equally excited to make this vision of a completely new game universe into a reality.”

THQ will own the rights for the inSANE game, while del Toro will own the rights for any filmed entertainment products.
