Brutal Legend Not in Danger of Being Canned, Says Developer Double Fine

Following word that newly-formed publisher Activision Blizzard will not be picking up every Vivendi title in the company's merger transition, developer Double Fine's upcoming heavy metal action title Brutal Legend was seen as a possible casualty.

Now a fresh update to the Double Fine Action News blog has assured fans that the game is in good hands.

Mouse-over text on an image of a dead weevil posted today reads simply, "Brutal Legend is fine." No further details were provided.

Starring Jack Black as a heavy metal roadie forced to battle demons in a fantasy realm, Brutal Legend is being headed up by longtime LucasArts developer Tim Schafer. The third person action game is planned for release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
