THQ Lowers Guidance On Delays, Low Shipments
Ahead of its Q2 earnings expected November 1st, THQ has announced delays of a number of next-gen titles, including Destroy All Humans, Frontlines, and de Blob, as well as lower than expected shipments of recent releases, leading to a lowered fiscal 2008 outlook.
Previously expected for release in its fiscal fourth quarter ending March 31st of next year, Destroy All Humans!: Path of the Furon for Xbox 360 and PS3, the PS3’s Frontlines: Fuel ofWar, and de Blob for the Wii and DS have all been delayed to unspecified dates in fiscal 2009. Because of this, its revised Q4 is expected to bring in sales of $240 million.
Man, I was really looking forward to De Blob, and Destroy All Humans. To bad we will have to wait until 2009.
