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. (Darksiders 2, Industry, Metro: Last Light, PC, PS3, South Park: The Stick of Truth, THQ, Wii U, Xbox 360)

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.
Megaton  +   811d 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...

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.

i dont know because i wouldnt want capcom,activision, or ea to get them for obvious reasons, and ubisoft would be a good choice but for me personally i can see them doing a great darksiders, but in vain of prushing prince of persia even more to the side as it already is.
Kennytaur  +   811d ago
Saints Row and Darksiders are the ones to watch, I hope they end up with Ubisoft, Square Enix or 2K. EA and Activision can suck it. The most important thing though, is not where the IPs go, but the talent behind them.

Dont sleep on last light, 2033 was dare I say on bioshocks level of atmosphere
