THQ has delayed the release date of Saints Row 2 (Xbox 360, PS3) by two months — from August 26th to October 14th — due to product quality and marketing considerations.

Pre-order Saints Row 2 for Xbox 360Saints Row 2, an action game featuring gangsters roaming an open world, is a key part of THQ’s bid to turn around its business, according to THQ’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing Bob Aniello. This after the company was hit last year by sluggish sales of other titles, reports Reuters

Maybe they need to polish up Saints Row 2’s co-op some more? Being able to play through the entire single player campaign in online co-operative mode definitely sets it apart from Grand Theft Auto IV‘s recent release.
