THQ says games from Left 4 Dead and Assassin's Creed creatives still in the works

THQ's projects with Turtle Rock, Patrice Désilets and Guillermo del Toro still in development.

It's been a tough month (and more) for publisher THQ. The company has been forced to delay two big games – Darksiders 2 and role-playing game South Park: The Stick of Truth – and is looking to unload anotherDevil's Third, the violent action-shooter from former Team Ninja talent. THQ has even scaled back its E3 presence this year.

The publisher's uncertain fate and the fate of Valhalla Games' Devil's Third sent THQ executive VP Danny Bilson to Twitter today to update us on one upcoming project, director Guillermo del Toro's horror game inSane.

"Guillermo Del Toro's 'inSane' is not cancelled!" Bilson tweeted earlier today.

Polygon followed up with Bilson to check on the status of two other semi-announced projects, the shooter from original Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios and the still-to-be-revealed original project from THQ Montreal and former Assassin's Creed creative director Patrice Désilets.

Bilson confirmed that both projects are still moving forward, with Turtle Rock's game "in full production" and Désilets' game "well into preproduction."

Turtle Rock's game was announced this time last year, promising a multiplayer game that will "take the first person shooter experience to a whole new level." Turtle Rock's game will not be at this year's E3 show, according to THQ's Jeremy Greiner.

Désilets and team officially began working on their project in the summer of 2011 at the publisher's recently formed Montreal studio.
