THQ staff now reporting job loss

The hugely important auction of THQ assets is now over, and while most of the information is still private, some staff members and developers under the company’s roof are reporting their unemployment. (Industry, PC, PS3, THQ, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Wow this is bad especially in this economy. Hopefully everyone that is hit by this finds a new home with another studio.

Good new.

While Im glad these games will be getting published it's sad to see THQ go down like this after all the years they've been active, I sure hope everyone can find work elsewhere...

CRYTEK BOUGHT HOMEFRONT???!?!??!?!?!?!

This, my friends, sounds like good news. Homefront is a game that I've always wanted to love, but it needs a little extra and Crytek SHOULD be able to deliver.

Relic was the only good studio in that company.
They build the best RTS's in the industry; wayyy better then anything blizzard has ever made.

Relic should of gone to M$; hopefully sega doesnt go down the tubes again.

it goes to show game development is costing too much money and these guys work is not even breaking even instead it comes with a loss, sad to see this happend but what do u expect when everybody go running buying crap games like c.o.d and forget the rest of the good games.this madness must end. too many developers are vanishing and crap games like c.o.d and halo and gears keep selling like it was the new thing no one played.dont understand gamers of today? back in the day gamers bought everything from crap to good stuff and in todays economy i think c.o.d is everybody poor man cup of tea cause its a safe haven for them.especially when u got bizillion of gamers playing online so other games dont stand a chance. hats off to u guys at THQ wish u the best and thank u for the great games u produce over the years and godspeed.
