Pachter: Skyrim, Saints Row 3 Could Suffer Delay

Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter believes that Elder Scrolls V: Skrim and Saints Row: The Third are at a slight risk of being delayed due to so many high profile games releasing in November.

He believes that Skyrim could be delayed until February without hurting sales, while Saints Row could be delayed anyway, with THQ looking to add more polish to the title.

"Bethesda will launch when it's ready, and it won't hurt the game to move into February; the latter [Saints Row 3] a very low probability, since it looks close to complete, and because THQ needs it in the holiday quarter, but given reviews on Homefront, they may choose to delay for more polish."

November includes strong titles such as Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Need for Speed: The Run.
