THQ CEO Brian Farrell, apparent Lord of The Acronyms, has confirmed that THQ will be publishing a third game in the Red Faction
The first two games drew a lot of attention when they were released, especially Red Faction 2
which featured 'geo-mod' technology. The Geo-Mod framework was supposed to allow completely destructible environments, but turned out to be a bit hit and miss in reality.
Speaking in a conference call to GameSpot
, Brian confirmed that the game will be developed by Volition. Volition previous developed Saint's Row
, as well as the previous Red Faction
Details are still pretty scarce and thin on the ground, but Brian has hinted that Red Faction 3
will expand on the destructible environment features by harnessing the power of next-gen systems.
The game doesn't currently have a specific release date, but is definitely in development for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
