Don't shoot the messenger

In reporting its second-quarter fiscal 2013 results, THQ announced the delay of South Park: The Stick of Truth. Originally scheduled for March 5, 2013, the Obsidian Entertainment-developed role-playing game is now looking to release "early fiscal 2014" -- in other words, at the earliest, in April 2013.

Unfortunately, there's more where that came from. Company of Heroes 2 and Metro: Last Light are now expected to ship in March. "Our fourth quarter releases are the first titles that I have had the ability to materially impact," stated THQ president Jason Rubin, "and experience told me that the games needed additional development time to be market-ready."

Disappointing news to come home to, no doubt about it. Hopefully that extra development time can be used effectively. Obviously we want every game to be good -- who wouldn't? -- but I do have high hopes for these three titles in particular.
