Homefront delayed

But don’t panic, it’s only by a week.

THQ announced the news during its Q3 financial report and fixed a new date for March 15, 2011 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

On the financial side of things (that’s what a financial report is usually about), THQ posted a $14.9 million loss for the three months ended December 31, 2010.

While the figure exceeded THQ’s projections for the quarter, net sales fell by $33.9 million to $323.1 million, versus $357 million for the previous year, despite the breakout success of the peripheral-based uDraw GameTablet.

“We posted a strong holiday quarter led by our new uDraw GameTablet, which shipped 1.2 million units. This owned intellectual property provides THQ with a new growth opportunity focused on innovative and creative game play,” THQ president and CEO Brian Farrell said today in a statement. “Our fiscal fourth quarter continues our robust release schedule of high quality, high profile games including Homefront, WWE All Stars, and de Blob 2 .”

THQ continued to push its commitment to established franchises looking ahead to fiscal 2012 – starting April 1, 2011 – which will include the “strongest core games line-up” in the publisher’s history thanks to titles such as Red Faction: Armageddon, Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine, and MX vs. ATV Alive.
