Sale Of THQ's Back Catalog Happening In Coming Weeks

Game Informer = "Many fans have been absolutely devastated to hear that some of THQ's franchises, such as Darksiders, MX vs. ATV, and Red Faction, have yet to find a buyer. But that doesn't mean they're out of luck." (Industry, PC, PS3, THQ, Xbox 360)

This is where EA will try to strike to get IP's on the cheap.

Anybody but EA, Activision, or Capcom. I hope Ubi, Sony, Sega, or 2K buys the leftover IP rights.

hmm, I forgot about 2k. I think they would continue the Darksiders series the way it should be done.

I'm hoping Red Faction doesn't go away for ever... Those games have all been great fun... yeah some are better than others, but at least they were different from eachother.

There seems to have a trend in the RF series. I myself have always liked it though. Some more than others, but you know that always happens.

RF 1 = awesome
RF 2 = average
RF 3 = awesome
RFA = average

wtf are you on?
RF 1 =AWESOME - was fantastic for its time, it was comparable to half like 1, maybe not as good but in the same vein as HL1.
RF 2 = Average
RF 3 =Awesome open world
RF 4 =yes average and disappointing

I'm kinda surprised ea didn't pick up saints row. I'm glad they didn't tho.
DeadlyFire  +   581d ago
I question does this mean Saints Row is still up for grabs as well as other ips not listed. As most of the articles I have read only list studios and 5 IPs actually being bought. Nothing about the individual ips from the studios.

Only ones I see confirmed are:
Evolve - Take Two
WWE License - Take Two
South Park - Ubisoft
Metro - Koch Media
Homefront - Crytek

Koch Media bought Volition, the entire studio and it's I.P's so they own the rights to Saints row, Red faction, and Summoner
