UPDATE: THQ PR got back to Kotaku and said they haven't heard anything about the rumored 2014 cancellations.

Original Story: THQ had a pretty rough fourth quarter, with poor sales of its uDraw drawing tablet and Saints Row: The Third, which didn't make much of a showing in an overstuffed market. If rumors are true, 2012 could continue to be tough for the company. Word is, the company has scrapped its entire 2014 lineup in an attempt to make itself look more attractive to potential buyers.

That scorched-Earth strategy would leave casualties including Crytek's Homefront 2, Guillermo del Toro collaboration inSane, and Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millenium Online, as well as former Assassin's Creed creator Patrice Désilets' new project.

Look for future stories on the site as this story unfolds.
