The THQ UK development team earmarked for closure - THQ Digital Warrington - will now absolutely definitely be shut down.
THQ may have been working on a downloadable version of street racing game Juiced, Eurogamer has discovered.
Another THQ studio has bitten the dust - THQ Digital Warrington, known once as Juice Games.
THQ has confirmed Red Faction III is in development for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
Saints Row developer Volition is making it, according to a conference call with boss Brian Farrell. "More exciting destruction technology" will be added this time around.
Red Faction is a first-person shooter set on Mars where Arnold Schwarzenegger once lived. The 2001 original's big boast was the ability to leave bullet holes in things you shot. And the sequel featured even more physics power.
Following THQ's decision to throw the Juiced series of racing games in the bin, Juice Games has said it is squeezing two fresh projects out.
Demos of Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 and Juiced 2 are among the highlights in this week's PlayStation Network shop update for Europe. About time - on both counts.
The PS2 and Xbox 360 versions are already screaming along further up the track, and the PS3 version is lining up on the grid for tomorrow, but the PC version of Juiced 2 is still around a month away, and THQ has released a demo version to try and sell you on its merits.
Those of you tuning up for the 28th September release of Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights can now try out the multiplayer in a new Live demo.
Do you have an Xbox 360? Do you like racing around in cars? Then you've come to the right place! Well, you've come to a news item talking about the right place. Because the right place is Xbox Live Marketplace, where demos of Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage await.
THQ has yet to announce it publicly, but reports in Swedish magazine Game Reactor suggest that a sequel to racing title Juiced is in development.
Called Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights, the game is reportedly due out this September on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP and PC, with the title a reference to the international car show of the same name.
Although details have yet to be officially confirmed, Internet reports suggest we'll see 93 licensed cars, 10,000 licensed components and real cities including Sydney, Rome, London, Paris and San Francisco. Drag racing and showdown modes have been ditched, with drift races apparently introduced in their stead.
