THQ doesn’t have “a lot of room to run”, CEO warns

Tuesday, 3rd July 2012 03:38 GMT By Brenna Hillier

CEO Brian Farrell has reiterated that the worst is past for THQ, but admitted the publisher has to stay on its toes.

“We want to show the shareholders that the heavy lifting is done,” Farrell told Gamasutra.

“The last six months have been an exercise in great pain and suffering. We feel like we’re getting there. We’ve taken a lot of negative things in the press – and frankly a lot of that was deserved.

“This company has changed. We have strong, new leadership. Look at our fourth quarter earnings. It’s starting to come together.”

The executive said THQ isn’t throwing all its weight behind AAA, and will continue to explore non-traditional spheres – but perhaps more conservatively than in the past.

“We don’t have a lot of room to run, so we’ve got to execute flawlessly,” he said.

“There is no question who is responsible for where THQ is right now. That’s with me. I feel equally responsible for getting this company out of it,” he added.

    “We have strong, new leadership. Look at our fourth quarter earnings. It’s starting to come together.”” Your leadership did not create the games that you published. The developers did. All you suits are f**king a**holes!

    ok don’t be pedantic, at the end of the day THQ funds them and own many of those developers. Calm down.
