THQ has announced delays to three of their big titles, following the release of the company’s Q2 financial earnings report. The company has revealed that Company of Heroes 2, Metro: Last Light and South Park: The Stick of Truth have all been delayed and will be releasing in “early fiscal 2014”, which means April 2013 at the earliest.
When it comes to Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2, THQ President Jason Rubin said stated that, “Giving both of these titles time to reach their full potential is the right thing to do for the products”. On the development of South Park, THQ Rubin said:
“I believe South Park’s market opportunity is significant,” Rubin continued. “It is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated titles of calendar 2013. It is also an expansive title, encompassing multiple television seasons’ worth of content. We have been working closely with the co-creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, to make sure all of the game’s content performs to the high standards of the TV show, and this takes time. THQ is committed to giving gamers no less than the rich South Park game they have been waiting for and deserve.”
