THQ has today revealed that it will no longer be making games based on childrens franchises, therefore don’t expect to see any more titles such as Kung Fu Panda, Spongebob Squarepants, Scooby Doo, Cars, My Little Pony or Bratz.
The company insists that it will now instead turn its focus to its main ‘core’ franchises, such as Saints Row, Darksiders, Warhammer and Homefront.
“THQ will be a more streamlined organization focused only on our strongest franchises,” president and CEO Brian Farrell said.
“The success of Saints Row: The Third is an example of what our revised strategy and focus can achieve. We have now shipped 3.8m units globally and are currently expecting to ship between 5m-6m units lifetime on this title.
“Additionally, our robust digital content offerings for this game have resulted in the highest digital revenue of any console title in our history.”
THQ is set for quite a strong 2012, titles such as Darksiders II, MetroLast Light, UFC Undisputed 3 and South Park: The Game are all due this year. A new Homefront game is also in development, although that hasn’t been dated as of yet.
