It’s offical. THQ has gone bust and the games it was publishing have been sold off. These are tough economic times and it seems that one or two failed games can mean the demise for many publishers.
THQ has a special place in my heart, being one of those companies that wasn’t scared to take risks by trying new things but unfortunately that was the reasoning behind their demise. We as gamers only have ourselves to blame by not trying anything new as figures suggest that new IP’s do not sell as well as sequels, no matter how good they are. If this carries on the future of gaming looks very bleak indeed, with the only big console games being sequels. How does Call of Duty 27 and FIFA 2050 sound?
