A recent financial debriefing from THQ reveals that Red Faction: Armageddon
will not be with us until May 2011
. CEO of THQ Brian Farrell commented on the changes:
THQ's creative organization is delivering a strong pipeline of core game franchises scheduled for release over the next several years, positioning THQ for significant net sales, earnings and cash flow growth. We continue to execute on our plan to deliver great games, market them aggressively and release them in the most advantageous windows.
Basically the decision to alter the release is a financially motivated one, as THQ poise themselves to net a proposed '$800 million to $825 million' in net sales, with Red Faction: Armageddon
at the crux of these earnings.
