Bankrupt game publisher THQ sold, auctioned off

The company’s assets have been divided, pending final court approval: Sega agreed to purchase Relic (Company of Heroes), Koch Media has agreed to purchase Volition (Saint’s Row) and the Metro property, Crytek has agreed to buy Homefront, Take-Two will purchase the unannounced game Evolve, and Ubisoft will buy THQ Montreal and the South Park game.

Sounds like a lot of people are going to lose their jobs. Bad news.

  • SO sad

    “If you are an employee of an entity that is not included in the sale, we regret that your position will end. “

    Pretty rough 2013 ahead

  • I was going to joke about now that Volition is dead, how about Freespace 3? But the lost jobs are really sad. Takes all the fun out of it.
