THQ has told Gamasutra that it’s to focus on releasing low-cost-triple-A-titles and free-to-play titles, following the sale of its UFC license to Electronic Arts.

The first ‘cheaper’ release from the company’s new mindset will be South Park: The Stick of Truth in March, 2013.

The firm also made it clear that it intends to enter the free-to-play market as a major concern. It also said that such free-to-play titles will particularly be developed for the next generation of home consoles.

THQ’s next triple-A title is Darksiders II, which is in development for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC and hits on August 14 this year. A Wii U version is also in development.
