Publisher THQ has confirmed that it has cancelled the PlayStation 3 version of Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon, due to unspecified "development issues". THQ confirmed the news to consumer website Shacknews, which first reported the removal of references to the PlayStation 3 version from both the game’s latest trailer and the GameStop website. No further details were provided on the exact reasons for the cancellation, but THQ has recently closed developer Sandblast Games. As such, Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon will be the last game to be developed by Sandblast, while THQ has also closed Locomotive Games, who were responsible for franchise spin-off Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed. Although the Wii version of the latter has already been released, the proposed PlayStation 2 and PSP version have also been cancelled. The Destroy All Humans! series was originally created by developer Pandemic Studios, prior to their acquisition by EA. Although initially successful, the game’s sequels have not had the same impact, while plans for a CGI-animated TV show based on the franchise appear to have been abandoned. [UPDATE: Talking to consumer site Eurogamer, a THQ UK spokesperson has revealed that the PS3 version of the title will not be released in North America, but will still debut in Europe on February 13th, 2009. The spokesperson explained: "Due to the game being shipped earlier in North America on 2nd December a decision was made to proceed exclusively with the Xbox 360 format in that market."]
