THQ said today it has canceled pre-production on Insane, the trilogy project from Volition Studios and movie director Guillermo Del Toro. The publisher said it has returned the rights of the game to Del Toro. The game was first revealed in December 2010. Since then, no other information has surfaced from the developer. THQ says Insane was in very early exploratory development and that no development teams have been affected by this announcement.

President Jason Rubin told Game Informer in an interview at E3 this June that Insane was still in production.

Previously, THQ also dropped publishing Devil's Third from Tomonobu Itagaki's Valhalla Game Studios.
