The demise of THQ: where each franchise is going, and what it means

PSU writes:

"Today's auction of various THQ intellectual property rights has ended, and news is pouring in of franchises and future games that will be henceforth published by other industry giants. Until just recently, the identities of the IPs and studios for sale was unknown . . . Now, we have a clear picture of where our favorite franchises will be going, and how much each company paid to acquire them.

The next few years will be very interesting indeed, as a whole host of sequels and titles-in-progress will now be published under different corporate umbrellas. Let's take a look at each successful bid, and examine what each sale means for the industry moving forward." (Industry, PC, PS3, THQ, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Even though I would've liked either WB or Ubisoft to buy Volition I'm happy neither EA nor Activsion got their Greedy hands on the company. Hopefully the next Saints game will go back to the greatness that was present in the first two games. I would also like it if Sony bought Vigil or even just buy the darksiders IP. Sony Santa Monica would do that franchise justice

The thought of a Santa Monica Studios Darksiders is fappable...

yes indeed

Ya I hope SaintsRow goes with the vibe of the first 2 games. Not too over the top, but still fun and bad ass. The third one was good, but it was more like an action comedy game imo lol

Since Relic went to Sega, Sega better not screw up Dawn of War 3. There had better be NO MENTION of Sonic the Hedgehog anywhere in it. lol
Freddy_Millz1  +   1106d ago
Man, im with u on that one. Dawn of war was/is one of my favorite RTS games of all time. I didnt even mind that DOW2 was a reboot of the series and lost some key mechanics, WH4k's lore always pulled me in.

Knowing Sega, they are gonna sneak some crap army called the Hedgehogs or the Echidnas or some trash like that...you KNOW how they do!
