The game publisher THQ announced together with the updated guidance for its Q3 and Q4 its decision not to pursue the gaming series Juiced and Stuntman, as well as cancelling Frontlines: Fuel of War for PS3 and Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy Unleashed for PS2. Additionally THQ closes the Concrete Games studio.
At times of Need for Speed Underground the game Juiced was a serious rival of the NFS series, but it never could really win recognition. THQ continued the Underground genre with last year's Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights, while EA went with ProStreet towards new horizons.
