THQ Confirms Red Faction Delay, Reveals Other Release Dates

You'll want to buy a game or fourteen to keep you busy while waiting for Devil's Third. Trust us.

Yesterday afternoon, THQ reported its fiscal 2012 line-up and dished out a bit of bad news for Red Faction fans. Volition's forthcoming sequel to Red Faction: Guerrilla, an exciting, perhaps more action-focused Red Faction joint subtitled Armageddon, will see a release in May 2011 instead of March 2011 as originally slated. No official word was given as to why the title was pushed back, but these kinds of press releases rarely get into that sort of detail.
 
THQ's report wasn't completely filled with details that make us hurt in that special soft place. Relic Entertainment's exciting third-person shooter, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, was given an anticipated release window of Summer 2011, while Volition's open-world action game Saints Row 3 and a new WWE title were confirmed as anticipated Fall 2011 releases. In other cool news release date news, a new MX vs. ATV game, MX vs. ATV Alive, was dated for a Spring 2011 release.
  
Here's a video of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine if haven't been keeping an eye on it:
  

   
== TEASER ==A new UFC title and Itagaki's Devil's Third were dated yesterday, too, though, you won't be seeing either for a good long while (or ever if you're a believer in the Mayan calendar end-of-the-world business). According to the report, UFC will be making its way to shelves in Winter 2012, while, according to Destructoid, Devil's Third won't be hitting until March 31, 2013--sixteen billion Internet Years from now.

Red Faction:Guerrilla was a fun little game, but the story wasn't compelling enough for me to see it through. The mechanic of blowing things up was pretty sweet, though. I've been hoping they can improve on the formula; perhaps the delay will help.

Playing through the game right now. Like you said, story is meh, but man. The mechanics of destruction! PIMP! I can't wait for the sequel now.

I was never much interested in Devils Turd but damn, that's a long tease.
 
As to UFC, good that they are not doing yearly updates but EA's MMA title could have three releases before the next UFC :D

Sounds like they are taking some time to actually make the games good, i like that.

I can't wait to see what they're doing with Saints Row 3. It's awkward to say, but I'm looking forward to the Spike Game Awards later this year just to see the game in action. Space Marine looks pretty good too. I wonder what the multiplayer will be like - if there is any to begin with.

I believe Saints Row 3 is going to be really different. They want to take the craziness to the next level and get beyond the standard genre gangster plot, or so I've read.

The world will look up and shout 'give us Homeworld 3' and Relic will look down and whisper 'no'  .

Great article Brad, nicely done, and other pleasant compliments.

@baron_calamity: Are you implying that Relic is an awesome deranged superhero with a bad ass costume? Because if so I totally agree.

If they can put the customization of APB with SR2's gameplay in Saint's Row 3 I would have a heart attack..

Is it me or did the 40k MMO sort of disappear? Looking forward to space marine though.

They released a new trailer at Gamescom, but that games not due until 2013, so I wouldn't expect to hear much for a while.
