Devil's Third release is uncertain as THQ pulls publishing plans

Firm 'in discussion' with third-party publishers

It seems like THQ is looking to pass on publishing duties for Devil's Third - a third-person shooter from Ninja Gaiden creator Tomonobu Itagaki.


Initially planned for an early 2013 release, the future of the game now looks uncertain as THQ announced today that it's "in discussion" with third party developers on the matter of its release, backing down on publishing the game itself.

The firm cited unexpected development costs related to engine development for the game as part of the reason behind its decision.

Devil's Third was unveiled with a trailer back in June 2010.

Since then the game's been confirmed as a 3D title and given a rough 2013 release date.
