The Fall of THQ

In case you’ve been living under a rock the last few months, then you’d no doubt be aware that THQ is in a bit of a financial mess right now. Actually saying it’s a financial mess is like saying the Hindenburg only had one small leak. Just a few days ago, THQ announced their stock dropped a massive 50%. This of course comes after announcing delays for Metro Last Light, South Park: Stick of Truth, and Company of Heroes 2, as well as admitting Darksiders II didn’t meet projected sales quotas. Maybe you’re living under a rock because you’re a THQ employee? (Darksiders 2, Dev, Industry, Metro: Last Light, Next-Gen, South Park: The Stick of Truth, THQ, Up)

That is a pretty dramatic loss.

personally i don't think THQ will be around next year to even put out Metro: Last Light or South Park TSoT. i mean its pretty apparent after ubisoft publicly stated they would want to buy IP's off THQ. i mean you don't really see publishers come out and say stuff like that to the media about another publisher.
