Bidding Closes For Remaining THQ IPs
According to a legal document filed this past week (as cited by Polygon), bidding is now closed for remaining THQ IPs. Seventeen final bids for a "certain" IP are expected to bring in between $6 million and $7 million when the sale process is complete at the end of May.
THQ has said in the past that they received over 100 expressions of interest in various franchises when bidding opened on April 1. IPs up for auction included Darksiders, Red Faction, Homeworld, MX and others. No specific names of bidders were contained in the document in question, although developer TeamPixel revealed that they tried to get Homeworld but were outbid. And that's not necessarily surprising. We just hope several of these franchises end up with good homes because those IPs really have a ton of potential.
And the sooner we can hear about a Darksiders III, the better.
