THQ Forced To Delay Upcoming Trio
Well, if you need the time to get 'em right, we say take that time.
During the company's latest financial update, THQ revealed that it has been forced to delay three upcoming titles.
South Park: The Stick of Truth (originally slated for March 5, 2013) is now set for "early fiscal 2014," which could mean the first fiscal quarter between April and June. Metro Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 are now scheduled to arrive in March 2013. In addressing these delays, THQ president Jason Rubin had this to say:
"When I joined THQ, the company made a public commitment to quality titles. We always expected that in some cases this would mean that more time would be needed to make sure that every title is of the highest possible quality."
Rubin added that he believes South Park has a "significant market opportunity" and it's shaping up to be one of the more anticipated games of next year. He says they're "committed to giving gamers no less than the rich South Park game they have been waiting for and deserve." As for numbers, THQ posted a net revenue of $107.4 million, down from the $146.0 million the company posted during the same period last year. But losses were down to $21 million (compared to $92.4 million), and digital revenues rose 34%.
Hey, we say just give us another Darksiders and we're good. Bad-ass game; play it if you haven't already.
