While whispers of the company canceling its entire 2014 lineup were quickly discounted by the company, it can't deny the dire state of its stock.
4A games should look for a new third party publisher.would hate for Metro to suffer because of THQ bad business mistakes.
Hate THQ they have bad support for their games namely Homefront where so many people couldnt get online and we all bitched about it on their forums and got no reply. Vowed not to buy a game from them ever since.
If management doesn't make the right adjustments they could be trying to get a bail out the way Activision did. I'm not sure if Saints row series is a good enough leverage property like COD was to get buyers interested.
Pray that Metro Last light gets published on time and keeps the quality.
I like THQ and think they generally make fun games....The Saints Row series & RF:Guerrilla probably being some of the best. I think they ought to focus on games that are successful instead of a lot of the fluff they publish too.
I don't really like the games THQ publish. Saint's Row is the exception. All the other games published are low quality. I liked Pandemic's games that were published by THQ in the Sixth Generation. Destroy all Humans, SW: Battlefront etc. They were the days. I wonder where THQ and Pandemic would be right now if Pandemic wasn't acquired by EA and then shut down. We probably wouldn't be commenting on this article.
I don't buy alot of THQ games but they do make some good games. The only series i I don't want anything to happen to is Darksiders.
If THQ disappears, I hope that the talented people from their best studios (Vigil, Relic, Volition) will quickly find another job within the industry (or that the entire studios will be bought) I must say I also wonder what will happen to the Darksiders a,d Saints Row franchises... And also if someone else will buy the rights to make W40K games
Darksiders, saints & warhammer need to be saved, if THQ goes down that is.
