THQ has announced some ominous news that the publisher will be delaying three of their highest profile games: South Park: The Stick of Truth, Company of Heroes 2, and Metro: Last Light.
According to THQ president Jason Rubin, the delay is to make sure the games are polished. "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," he stated.
However, THQ's recent financial issues loom large. THQ posted a loss of $21 for the three-month period ending on the 30th September. However, the quarter was an improvement over the $92.4M lost at the same period in 2011.
Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 are now expected to have releases in March 2013, while South Park's 5th March 2013 launch will be pushed back.
