THQ disappointed with Deadly Creatures sales but have announcements coming
“We wanted to see ‘is there an audience out there that will play something completely different on the Wii?’. Commercially, we were not pleased with how it was received, but again, the critics loved it and that happens in this business sometimes…We don’t have a good post-mortem on [Deadly Creatures], but one of the key things that we can build on there is we have great — that was [developed by] one our internal studios, Rainbow Studios — and we have great Wii technology there now and so we’re developing other games — stay tuned for the announcements — but we intend to leverage that great technology on the Wii in the future.” – THQ CEO Brian Farrell
You know, I actually wasn’t expecting Deadly Creatures to be a commercial success and I’m sure I’m not the only one who felt that way. Deadly Creatures 2 probably isn’t in the cards for Wii at this point, but I’m interested in seeing the types of titles THQ/Rainbow Studios will create in the future.
