How Saints Row and Metro ended up with Koch Media

Gamasutra- Of all the results of THQ's recent auction, perhaps the most unexpected was Germany's Koch Media stepping in to snatch up some of THQ's biggest assets: Saints Row and its developer Volition, and the rights to the promising Metro series.

Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch, and his management team took a crash course in the Chapter 11 process and came out the other side as a more formidable player in the triple-A game space, with Saints Row 4 and Metro: Last Light in development. (Industry, Koch Media, Metro 2033, PC, PS3, Saints Row, Xbox 360)

Interesting. I am glad that Activision didn't act on this.

If their name is pronounced how I think it is I don't think Saints could have found a more fitting new home.

I'll say this, I could see Deep Silver bringing back STALKER but I couldn't see Ubisoft.

That's not a prediction, just saying there's a microscopic chance with Deep Silver, IMO.
