THQ has said that it doesn't plan to continue developing further entries in the Red Faction franchise after Red Faction: Armageddon, the latest in the series, failed to meet expectations.
The comment came in a THQ investor call, where CEO Brian Farrell said that 'we do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way.'
The Red Faction development team at Volition Studios has been moved on to a new project - Guillermo del Toro's inSane survival horror game.
The Red Faction series kicked off in 2001 and spawned a sequel a year later. A third entry in the series, Red Faction: Guerrilla, appeared in 2009 and Red Faction: Armageddon launched earlier this year. The signature of the series has been the destructability of large structures and environments.
