THQ has pushed back a number of new titles, including South Park: The Stick of Truth and Metro: Last Light into the fiscal quarter of early 2014. While THQ had a number of titles released recently that did quite well, including Saints Row the Third and Darksiders II, the bad sales of Red Faction: Armagedon didn’t help the companies financial situation.
THQ’s recent news release detailed a number of their decision. While they have delayed Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 in order to “set standards for visuals with its stunning atmosphere, unique location and cutting-edge style” and “live up to [their] pedigree”, the companies ideas and hopes for the new South Park game is quite interesting:
I believe South Park’s market opportunity is significant. 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.
If you were waiting for one of these titles, most of them eagerly anticipated, it seems you’ll need to wait a little bit longer. The full financial report can be found here.
