A recent rumour that THQ have cancelled the PS3 version of WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 07 is untrue.
A number of websites, including Digital Battle, reported that THQ had decided to scrap the game because ‘“the development team would rather concentrate their resources on the three other platforms“. The statement was said to have come from the official THQ forum, but the link to the post seems to now be invalid.
We contacted THQ for clarification and they made the following statement,
“The next installment in our perennial SmackDown franchise is slated for release across multiple game systems this holiday. The highly anticipated WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2007 is scheduled to ship for Xbox 360, PSP and PlayStation 2 in November. Consistent with our goal of delivering the highest quality content across all next-gen platforms, we have decided to postpone the debut of the SmackDown series on PlayStation 3 until the holiday 2007 timeframe.”
So, THQ haven’t cancelled the PS3 version of WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 07, it’s just been postponed.
