South Park: The Stick of Truth, which was originally slated for a March 2013 release date, has now slipped to an unspecified date in early fiscal 2014. THQ's fiscal year begins in April, suggesting a possible release in April, May or June.
THQ also pushed back Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 to arrive in March of 2013, later than originally planned.
The delays will be used to add polish to the games, and THQ president Jason Rubin said: "Giving both of these titles time to reach their full potential is the right thing to do for the products."
The delays come as the company reports its second quarter results, which saw a drop in net sales year-on-year. The typically hour-long conference call with investors lasted less than 15 minutes, with the company refusing to take questions.
THQ's financial outlook also mentions that it is seeking strategic alternatives to help reach its goals in light of the game delays. Strategic alternatives is a phrase that commonly refers to seeking a buyer, either for one of the company's intellectual properties or for the company itself.
As if presenting a menu for other publishers, THQ added that it it is currently developing ten titles for fiscal 2014, including Saints Row 4, Homefront 2 and an unannounced game from Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock Studio.
Earlier this year THQ released Darksiders 2, which was a critical success but has only sold 1.4 million copies so far.
Later this month a Wii U version of Darksiders 2 will release, including all current DLC from the other versions and unique controls for the Wii U GamePad. It is the last game THQ is scheduled to release until Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2.
