THQ will no longer be developing MX vs. ATV games it has said today, meaning that MX vs. ATV Alive will be the last game in the series from the publisher.
In addition to this, THQ has decided to close down two Australian studios as well as another development team in Phoenix.
According to THQ Boss Brian Farrell, who was speaking via a press release, the company is ‘narrowing’ its “focus to high-quality owned IP with broad appeal that can be leveraged across multiple platforms, and to work with the best talent in the industry.”
Unfortunately this means that there have been the casualties mentioned above, as in addition to cutting off the MX vs. ATV series the company is also reducing its focus on movie-based and licensed kids’ video games.
THQ will now focus on its five studios, THQ Montreal, Volition, Relic, Vigil and THQ San Diego.
