THQ Inc have announced that Juiced, the ill-fated racer whose future looked to be in jeopardy when Acclaim folded mere months ago, is to see a release on P.C, Playstation2, and XBox systems in May 2005.

The games publisher has been working with Juice Games on adding a number of tweaks and improvements to its title, intending to enhance the experience of this street racer.

"THQ is extremely excited to be entering into a long term relationship with Juice Games, as the global publisher for the keenly awaited street racer, Juiced," said Peter Dille, Senior Vice President, worldwide marketing, THQ. "With the additional time we've allocated to the title, we're certain that Juiced will excite gamers across the globe even more than originally anticipated."

"Every developer dreams of having a few months to polish their creation so that it truly matches the original vision they had for it", stated Colin Bell (founder of Juice Games). "That's exactly the opportunity we've been given by THQ. Racing game fans are very discerning, and we're keen to deliver something that far exceeds their expectations."

Additional cars and tracks are planned for the release, as well as numerous gameplay and visual enhancements.

Part of the advertising campaign planned is set to include a playable demo across all three formats.
