THQ's Losses; More Space Marine DLC Announced

Game Informer has word from a THQ post-earnings conference call that Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine has shipped 1.2 million units since the release of the action/RPG. On a related note, Eurogamer reports plans for another DLC pack for the game: "Due on all formats in December priced at 800 Microsoft Points or equivalent, the add-on includes a new Exterminatus co-op mode called Chaos Unleashed which sees you playing as a Chaos Space Marine fighting off both Orks and Imperial Guard Forces."

As for those earnings, THQ's Fiscal 2012 Second Quarter Results are in, reporting a net loss of $92.4 million ($1.35 per diluted share), "compared with a net loss of $47.0 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, in the prior-year period." Here's some polish for that: "We are encouraged that our second quarter performance exceeded our expectations, particularly in a quarter with a light release schedule," said Brian Farrell, THQ President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our two biggest quarters of the year remain ahead of us, and we are focused on execution. In Q3 we are planning for the largest quarter in our history, in terms of sales and earnings, driven by Saints Row: The Third, the uDraw GameTablet, and WWE 12. With UFC Undisputed 3 launching in the fourth quarter, we are well-positioned to deliver a strong second half of fiscal 2012."
