THQ officially announces Frontlines cancellation

First, there were murmurs. Then, there were rumors. Now, it has become truth. Today, publisher THQ has confirmed the PS3 version of Frontlines has been canceled, making it a late in the game Xbox 360 console exclusive. "In October, we announced certain product quality initiatives, including personnel and structural changes in product development and a more rigorous internal and external product evaluation and feedback process," said Brian Farrell, president and CEO of THQ. "Consistent with these initiatives, we have taken actions to strengthen our pipeline and position ourselves to compete aggressively with compelling, high quality games." Apparently, that means getting rid of PS3 games.

Kaos Studios also responded on their forums. "THQ has made the decision to cancel the PS3 version of Frontlines. We looked at a number of ways to keep this version of the game alive but in the end, we just couldn't make it happen ... I'm sorry I couldn't give you an update until now but until the final decision and announcement was made by THQ, there was nothing official to say. We did try and find a way to work things out but, at least for this version of Frontlines, it wasn't possible."

Looks like today's not a very good news day for PS3 FPS fans, huh?
