THQ’s 2014 Lineup Is Alive And Well

THQ’s 2014 Lineup Is Alive And Well

Further distancing the company from rumours that its 2014 lineup had been canned, today’s third-quarter 2012 financial results from THQ list inSANE, Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium Online and several more unannounced core titles that should be showing up over the next couple of years.

Warhammer 40k fans in particular should be pleased that the upcoming massively-multiplayer game based on the beloved universe is still slated for release somewhere in fiscal year 2014 and beyond. The fate of the MMO project was still up in the air following THQ’s assurance that its 2004 lineup was not cancelled.

The report lists four games slated to be released in fiscal year 2013, which begins in April: South Park: The Game, the annual WWE game, Metro: Last Light, and Devil’s Third. Titles slated for release in fiscal year 2014 and beyond include an unnamed title from Turtle Rock Studio, Dark Millennium Online, inSANE, Homefront 2 and the unnamed project from former-Ubisoft beard Patrice Désilets.

THQ also indicates that there are four unannounced core titles in development for fiscal year 2014, one of which is likely the long-rumored new Company of Heroes game.


  • For those that are interested, this is THQ’s “2004 lineup”:

    -The Fairly OddParents: Shadow Showdown
    -Full Spectrum Warrior
    -Hot Wheels: Stunt Track Challenge
    -The Incredibles
    -The Incredibles: When Danger Calls
    -It’s Mr. Pants
    -Jimmy Neutron: Attack of the Twonkies
    -My Life As A Teenage Robot 2: The Robot Prime
    -The Polar Express
    -Sabre Wulf
    -Scooby-Doo! Two: Monsters Unleashed
    -Sonic Advance 3
    -The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie Game
    -Tak 2: The Staff of Dreams
    -Tetris Elements
    -Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War *
    -WWE Day of Reckoning
    -WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw

    Thank god that’s not going to be affected.

    * To make it easy, i’ve highlighted all the releases that actually qualify as games.

  • Apparently the 40k game still needs help, though and they are looking for a partner to help share the costs (and hopefully profits) involved.

    I would be shattered if it ended up getting canned!

    • I’m a big WH40K fan, tabletop and PC game, but I truly wonder if there’s space for an MMO at the moment. If the expected release is say 2014 etc, there may be some down time since WOW and SWTOR being at each other. So fingers crossed, but it’s definitely a gamble.

      • The 40k MMO is a huge gamble. They’ve poured so much money into it year-on-year while at the same time bleeding money.

        MMOs have a bit of a history of flopping and taking down the company that created them. It’s going to be interesting to see if THQ manages to pull it off.
