South Park The Stick Of Truth, Metro Last Light and Company Of Heroes 2 All Delayed By THQ
THQ tonight released their results for the second quarter of the 2013 financial year and revealed that South Park The Stick of Truth, Metro Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 have all been delayed.
The Stick of Truth has been moved into financial year 2014 meaning a launch date of April 1st 2013 at the earliest. Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 have both been pushed back to March 2013.
For the period ending September 30th THQ had net sales of $91.8 million and losses of $12.1 million.
THQ’s president James Rubin said: “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.
“THQ is excited about our position and pipeline of games beyond fiscal 2013,” he added.
“I believe South Park’s market opportunity is significant. It is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated titles of calendar 2013. We are also inspired by the potential for Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2. Giving both of these titles time to reach their full potential is the right thing to do for the products,” Rubin concluded.
After the investor conference call, which lasted only 13 minutes, THQ refused to take questions which is the standard procedure. Shares in THQ were suspended in after hours trading.
