THQ has recently announced a two month delay for three of its upcoming games. South Park: The Stick of Truth was originally slated for release on March 5th, 2013 but has been pushed back till April 1st, 2013. Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 will now be launched sometime in March 2013 which is “later than initially planned.” stated directly from THQ.

“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,” said THQ president Jason Rubin. “Our fourth quarter releases are the first titles that I have had the ability to materially impact, and experience told me that the games needed additional development time to be market-ready.” 

The THQ president also noted that “THQ is committed to giving gamers no less than the rich South Park game they have been waiting for and deserve,” and that giving Company of Heroes 2 and Metro: Last Light “time to reach their full potential is the right thing to do for the products.”
