THQ Assets Sale: Volition Inc To Be Sold; Ubisoft Could Be Potential Buyer

If you have been following the goings on in the gaming industry lately, you’ll know that THQ has been in trouble. By trouble, we don’t mean your average “disappointing release” trouble that every major publisher gets hit by every year. No, we mean full on, end of the company trouble. THQ has gone through many attempts at trying to save their sinking ship lately, including a 1-for-10 Reverse Stock Split so that they could stay on the NASDAQ, and more recently filing for bankruptcy. (Dev, Industry, THQ, Ubisoft, Volition, Inc.)

Rockstar should buy it and make Saints Row 4 XD

Ha no. Rockstar isn't the same company is was. They have matured a lot

Who ever gets Saint's Row please still make the thing ridiculous. I don't want it turn GTA nor do I want GTA to turn Saints Row.

Well, they would be buying Volition Inc. so it would be the same people who would be making it.

No,Saints Row should be bought by another 3rd party and continue to be competition...R* have enough sandbox franchises and i'm sure they are creating a brand new one sooner or later...

I'll be OK if Ubisoft keep most of the franchises.

Man why isn't MS,Sony and Nintendo not in the mix? This is where MS can snatch up some very good franchises for the Xbox8!

I think the franchises should stay multi-plat. If not, imagine the inevitable shit-storm on the internet? Bayonetta was not even THAT popular (going off of sales for obvious reasons), and the internet was pissed off majorly. Imagine if something bigger like Saints Row went exclusive?

As far as I'm concerned, MS and Sony should be creating their own new IP's, not buying existing ones. As for MS, one can not deny they have a lot of catching up to do in that respect, and they also have a lot to prove next-gen if they want my return $$$.

First thing to do, a reboot of Red Faction equally as inventive as Guerrilla.
