The end of THQ has come
by David Stellmack on24 January 2013
Assets sold to a number of publishers
Well, the end of THQ is finally upon us; and we are sad to report that the auction results have revealed that a number of publishers have divided up the spoils. Here are the lucky bidders, and provided that it is all approved, this is where the titles are going to end up.
Relic Entertainment / Company of Heroes – Sega
THQ Montreal / 1666 / Underdog / Additional un-named titles in development – Ubisoft
Turtle Rock Studios – Evolve – Take-Two Interactive
Volition Inc. / Saints Row – Koch Media/Deep Silver
Homefront – Crytek
Metro / Metro: Last Light – Koch Media/Deep Silver
South Park License / South Park: Stick of Truth – Ubisoft
Some assets/titles drew no bids or were not included as part of their sales agreement; and according to THQ, they are still looking to find buyers if at all possible. Still, that leaves studios like Vigil with no new home as of yet, but before this fire sale is over, no one knows where they might end up.
