THQ Auction: Where Should the Games End Up?

OnlySP writes: The holiday season may be behind us, but there seems to be one more stuffed turkey waiting to be picked apart and feasted upon. Beleaguered publisher THQ filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy on December 19th and failed in their attempt to push through a quick sale of the company’s assets to Clearlake Capital Group. After some legal head-butting between Clearlake and THQ’s creditors, the US Trustee overseeing the bankruptcy proceedings has ordered that the publisher’s assets, including studios and game licenses, will be auctioned off one-by-one on January 22nd.

The story is too old to be commented.

I hope Saints Row doesn't go to a major publisher. WB PLEASE pick it up....

If not, saints row 4 will probably be my last.

Jan 22n'd will be a very interesting day to say the least..

Don't care as long as they don't all end up at Activision and EA.

Saints is the only one that matters. Where that one falls will make or break the series. Can't land somewhere full of uptight corporate douchebags.

Oddly enough, I wouldn't mind Square grabbing it up.

Would be pretty sweet to get JustCause's presentation with SaintsRow's shenanigans.

Megaton1291d ago

I dunno. Square's a mixed bag. Wouldn't mind seeing 2K get it, particularly Gearbox.

Saints Row IP is the obvious choice for top pick and I can see EA and Acitivion both fighting hard for this one.

That said, SR is definitely not the only game IP that needs to find a home.

Company of Heroes is an excellent RTS...but give it to Fraxis and Take 2 and let them put the Xcom treatment to it!

Homefront 2 - Crytek has this project now and I think they could be the right dev to make this game relevant. Ubisoft seems like a good home for this game.

War Hammer 40K Space Marine - was a great first step... Nintendo could use another hardcore FPS besides ZombieU.

Theres plenty more out there too...

PockyKing1291d ago

Don't forget about Last Light, that's going to be one of THQ's finest games released in years, or so I hope. But I trust the guys making it, loved 2033.

War Hammer 40K Space Marine is part of the Warhammer 40k IP so Nintendo wont get it or any first party publisher.
