THQ Seeks To Unload Remainder Of Intellectual Properties
THQ is basically gone, as they've already sold off a number of their assets and properties. The rest will be sold soon and THQ will officially be no more. So sad.
The former publisher has announced that it will sell what's left of its intellectual properties in a court-supervised sale, to be finalized soon.
They're looking to take bids on some of their most popular IPs, including Darksiders, Red Faction, Homeworld and MX, along with licensed software like Marvel Super Hero Squad, Supreme Commander, Worms and others. THQ expects to complete the bidding and sale process for everything by the middle of May. Initial bids must be in by April 1, 2013 and final bids must be in place by April 15. THQ claims to have seen over 100 expressions of interest for various titles already, and that number may continue to grow.
They've managed to sell three studios (THQ Montreal, Volition, Inc. and Relic Entertainment) along with a few games (Homefront 2, Metro: Last Light, South Park: The Stick of Truth). But hey, we wanna see more Darksiders and - if it's done correctly - more Red Faction.
