The lights are on
Previous reports claiming that Del Toro had already lined up a new publisher for his survival horror game proved premature.
Speaking to the Toronto Sun about the Insane trilogy, which THQ cancelled last year, the critically acclaimed film director said his ambitious video game project is still being pitched to major players in the game industry.
"We are in talks with a very, very big company," he said. "I can’t say who, but it’s one of the big ones. They really responded to the game, they responded to what we were trying. Some of the devices of the game I need to update, because now I’ve seen them in other games that just came out. That always happens. But the principle we’re trying to do with the game is to make it a really immersive narrative experience. It’s still a really challenging proposal.”
Where, if anywhere, do you think this project will land?

I get the feeling EA would want to jump onto this, as it seems recently they have been trying experiment in publishing different IPs. For example: Bulletstorm, Shadows of the Damned, Fuse, the upcoming game from the former Infinity Ward guys.
EA, they seem interested in expanding their survivor horror titles besides Dead Space.
I wonder who's gonna just go crazy and get Insane?
With Guillermo Del Toro behind it they'd be nuts not to at least check it out.
Definitely not Activision. I think EA will get it, but I'm hesitant on that. EA is very quick to drop an IP if it doesn't meet sales expectations. Dunno... I'd rather see someone like Sony publishing it, but since this is almost invariably look at the multiplayer market, then I can't really say which company would be best suited for it.
Here u go Microsoft heres a exclueve for u. pick it up I will gladly play this on my next box. I'm not a Microsoft fanboy im just saying. I own both the 360 & Ps3 look up my id's rapturesassassin (ps3) & raptassassin (360)
The people want this. Someone make it happen.
There are just too many good survival horror games out there...
said no one ever.
Stop Guillermo its never gonna happen. This game would have already been released.
does this mean he has it developed and only needs a publisher?
The bigger publishers like EA, Activision and Ubisoft would no doubt want to tack on a MP mode... Which would compromise the IP IMO. I'm thinking it'll be more likely to be Bethesda where they're willing to take more risk to deliver a SP game they think is great: such as Dishonored.
so.... EA or activision i guess then
