''THQ (NasdaqGS: THQI - News) is pinning its hopes for a turnaround from a lackluster performance on a just-announced slate of 2008-2009 games. THQ CEO Brian Farrell told paidContent.org in an interview that the turnaround will depend on the games released this year, and that he was heartened by the good reception of the line-up at a launch event in San Francisco this week. "Historically, we have been the fastest-growing company in the sector," said Farrell, admitting the past year had been tough. "We're quite confident that-presuming we can execute crisply on getting the games to the level of quality we want and getting it to the market on time-we think the rapid growth rate will resume."
