After THQ dumped Guillermo del Toro's proposed video game trilogy, inSane , we all figured we wouldn't hear about it again for a while. After all, it takes time to find a new publisher, right?
Well, according to what the acclaimed film director told IGN , it didn't take long at all to find a new home for inSane :
"We were going to go to a lot of developers after THQ, but it seems like we’re going to be developing it after the first meeting we had. I can’t disclose where it was, but we went to a great developer on the first meeting and it seems that they’re picking it up because they love the package."
Now, we're not sure if he means to say "publisher" there, but I figure we'll learn the details in due time. As for a time frame, del Toro believes the first game will require another two years of development, which would presumably put the title into the next generation of hardware…right? Here's the progress update:
"The development span of a game like this is three years. We put a good year and a half into it and we have the universe quite figured out, but we are now going to take that and start doing all the leg work with coding it, creating the engine, and starting to test it. The basic tenants of the game is that it’s created, but now we’re going to need to start actually making it. It’s going to take a good two years of modeling and rendering and creating the environments and all of that."
We still have no idea what this game (or these games) are even about. No details concerning the genre or platforms have been released just yet but hey, it's very early going. We can be patient.
