Lots of news surrounding THQ news these days, specifically resports of dire financial straits and major internal changes. Just yesterday, THQ revealed that CEO Brian Farrell would be receiving a 50 percent pay cut, while 240 unlucky employees will be losing their jobs.
In January, the publisher announced plans to drop kids games and refocus on "core" money-making franchises like Saints Row, UFC, and Darksiders, plus promising IPs. At least we can be certain the Metro series is safe, but yesterday's financial report also confirms Metro: Last Light's delay.
Originally slated for a late 2012 release, Last Light has been pushed back to early 2013, which Farrell attributes to developers needing more time to "enhance and polish the gameplay of this hidden gem."
