THQ delays 'Saints Row 2' by nearly two months

SAN FRANCISCO, May 28 (Reuters) - THQ Inc THQI.O is delaying the release of its “Saints Row 2” video game by two months due to product quality and marketing considerations, a senior executive said on Wednesday.

The delay to Oct. 14 from Aug. 26 means the game will be released in THQ’s fiscal third quarter instead of the second quarter, but will not affect the company’s financial outlook for its 2009 fiscal year, Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, told Reuters.

“Saints Row 2”, an action game featuring gangsters roaming an open world, is a key part of THQ’s bid to turn around its business, hit last year by sluggish sales of other titles. (Reporting by Scott Hillis; editing by Carol Bishopric)
