Recently, THQ abandoned the Red Faction series, and now they have gone and done the same thing with the MX vs. ATV brand.

Sadly, as a result people have lost their jobs at the Phoenix-based studio. THQ has also announced that they have closed de Blob developer Blue Tongue Entertainment, as well as THQ Studio Australia.

“As we have outlined in our business strategies, we are making shifts to reduce movie-based and licensed kids’ video games in our portfolio, which underscores our strategy to move away from games that will not generate strong profits in the future,” said THQ’s president and CEO, Brian Farrell.
