THQ Kills San Diego Studio

The WWE All Stars maker has been shuttered.

I guess this means we won't be getting a sequel anytime soon...

In a move all-but-assuredly timed to be buried underneath the deluge of press conference recaps and trailer postings of E3 Day Zero, THQ has reportedly shuttered one of its studios and then proceeded to totally not say anything about it.

The studio in question is THQ San Diego, the team that most recently had worked on the critically-acclaimed arcade wrestling game WWE All Stars. According to the report, the team had been working on a new UFC game, which obviously became unnecessary following today's announcement that the UFC licensed had been passed to EA.

The San Diego studio had originally been purchased by THQ from Midway, following the latter publisher's demise. The team had previously worked on TNA Wrestling, as well as the Backyard Wrestling series.
