THQ seem to be doing well on the sports front.

Today they announced that they've extended their publishing deal with the UFC to last until 2018. THQ took the right to publish games for the sport back in 2007, and have so far done UFC Undisputed 2009 & 2010.

Longer dev cycles for UFC titles "rather than annually" says THQ

The lower than expected sales for UFC Undisputed 2010 has THQ a little jittery, and so they're "considering a longer" cycle for development.

The franchise isn't losing THQ's commitment said CEO Brian Farrell, they just want more time for each release to avoid it feeling too samey.

Publisher THQ won't be ditching the UFC Undisputed franchise any time soon despite sales not being so hot, although it did meet expectations.

They even list a number of causes for a slow pickup to this year's UFC title: Red Dead Redemption, the economy, VAT, iPad, the World Cup...
