THQ picks up 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand

Could it be out in time for Christmas?

It looks like 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand will still get a release despite the demise of former publisher Sierra.

It's being listed in the classification database of Australia's ratings board. They've given the game a 15+ certificate and are advising it features "strong violence and coarse language, sexual and drug references".

The publisher is listed as being THQ - so it would seem they've picked up the rights from Sierra. Blood on the Sand was originally in development for PS3 and Xbox 360, and due out this autumn.

THQ has yet to make any official announcements, and there's no word on when the game might hit the shops. Seeing as it's already being rated, however, a pre-Christmas release looks likely.
