Red Faction Franchise Is Done

on July 28, 2011 4:30 PM

For those of you looking forward to another installment of the Red Faction franchise, you’d be wise to wait elsewhere, as the franchise has officially come to a close. This was announced earlier today at an investors meeting with THQ, where CEO Brian Farrell stated that “we do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way.” By that franchise, he, of course, means Red Faction.. The cancellation of the franchise was likely due to poor sales of Red Faction: Armageddon. Farrell also called developer Volition “talented”, and THQ has moved them over to working on a Guillermo del Toro survival horror game called inSane.

As a result, he can often be found lifting things, fighting for justice, and being a crazy outlaw journalist on the edge who doesn't play by the rules. When he’s not writing about, reviewing, or playing games, music, and occasionally writing well-paying profiles of businessman, Daniel thinks about what exactly he'll end u doing with his life post-graduation. Daniel plans on either going to graduate school for an MFA, or more realistically, getting a day job, which he hopes is somehow involved in the gaming, comic book, or film industries.
