South Park: The Stick of Truth Slips into 2013, THQ Looking To Drop Devil's Third

THQ has released its fiscal 2012 Q4 results and year end results today, revealing that Obsidian Entertainment's South Park: The Stick of Truth (formerly South Park: The Game) has been delayed into THQ's fiscal Q4 2013, which by our reckoning is Q1 2013.
That means it'll now launch in the same 2013 release window as THQ's Metro: Last Light, with the publisher's annual WWE title also slated to land in 2013. Obviously. Darksiders II is still set for August 2012 and Saints Row: The Third - Enter the Dominatrix will be launching in September 2012.
Talking of Saints Row, THQ also reported that the Saints Row franchise as a whole has shipped a staggering 11 million units, with 4.25 million units of Saints Row: The Third being shipped. Rebranding the WWE franchise for WWE '12 also helped the company's wrestling title to 2.2 million units shipped to date. UFC Undisputed 3 meanwhile, has shipped 1.4 million units.
Last, but not least, THQ is also looking to drop Tomonobu Itagaki's Devil's Third. Itagaki's first project with his new outfit Valhalla Games since uncerimoniously departing Team Ninja, the shooter title has been shelved by the publisher. Bah! Still, it could be picked up by another publisher. Maybe.
