THQ Pays Saints Row Tribute in Final Moments

OXCGN:

"Over the past few years, THQ has been in financial trouble, and declared bankruptcy recently.

A few days ago, their franchises were auctioned off to the highest bidders.

It’s a sad day for the gaming community, as the body of THQ was thrown to the vultures and picked clean.

Even in the midst of losing their jobs, the employees of THQ kept their spirits up.

Today was the company’s last day of operation, and in its final moments, they paid tribute to Saints Row." (Industry, PC, PS3, Saints Row: The Third, THQ, Xbox 360)

Incredibly humbling. Even to the end, they could laugh.

It's a fitting sendoff.

Even Peter Jackson's goofy cousin got a drink.

RIP Saints Row, it only took you a third try for me to care about that franchise. You will be missed.

While this is sad, at least most of their properties were bought.

I can't wait to see what Ubi does with 1666

Yeah it would have been worse if THQ died and their properties died with them.

It's really unfortunate... Company of Heroes 2, Metro: Last Light, South Park... all great games almost released, and now someone else will get all the credit.

Damn! Thq was a really good company that made really great games! How did they end up in bankruptcy? Rockstar shouldve bought saints row.
