Seeks Partner For Dark Millennium Online
As expected, THQ has posted losses of $55.9 million over the last quarter... but they've come out swinging in their recent financial report. Development is continuing unabated, and they've announced that six new core titles will be hitting between now and 2014. It's a strong showing in the face of rumours that they'd be forced to cut back on their release schedule - though they're seeking a partner for ambitious Warhammer 40,000 MMO Dark Millenium Online as part of a more "realistic" strategy.
We've rounded up the launch schedule below.
THQ has confirmed eight releases for fiscal year 2013 (April 2012 to March 2013), including Darksiders 2, Metro: Last Light, Devil's Third and Obsidian's South Park RPG, along with two unannounced games that will be revealed over the next few months. Looking forward, 2014 will also play host to four more "company-owned IPs" along with Guillermo Del Toro's inSANE and Turtle Rock's shooter.

Rumours previously suggested that Dark Millennium Online may have been shelved due to THQ's tricky financial situation, but CEO Brian Farrel has confirmed that the project is still slated for a 2014 launch. However, they're "actively seeking a partner," and it will be interesting to see who bites.
