re: THQ titles are being auctioned off today

I'm just hoping that Saints Row 4 will be better than 3 and that the South Park game won't be affected by this in any way. I'm still not sure if that game was going to be worth a shite or not.

never played homefront or crysis, so I'm indifferent on that end.

The rest of the assets didn't even amount up to the winning bid for Relic. That close to being in the Zenimax umbrella, damn.

SEGA has agreed to purchase Relic, developer of Company of Heroes 2 and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

Koch Media (owner of Dead Island publisher Deep Silver) has agreed to purchase Saints Row developer Volition as well as the publishing rights to the Metro franchise. (Update: According to a statement issued by Koch, "Deep Silver, Koch Media’s international publishing powerhouse, will lead all further development and marketing on the Saints Row and Metro franchises." The statement added that "Koch Media and Deep Silver will roll out future plans for each franchise in the coming months.")

Crytek, who is currently developing Homefront 2, has purchased the rights to the Homefront franchise.

Take-Two (parent company of 2K and Rockstar) has agreed to purchase Turtle Rock Studios’ project codenamed Evolve. (Update: While Take Two was initially rumored to have acquired Darksiders publisher Vigil, it has since been revealed that this isn't the case)

Ubisoft has purchased the rights to publish South Park: The Stick of Truth as well as THQ Montreal, the current developer of Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Desilets’ project codenamed 1666. (Update: Ubisoft has confirmed the purchase, noting in a statement that "THQ Montreal will join Ubisoft’s development teams." Ubisoft also says that South Park: The Stick of Truth "is scheduled for release in calendar 2013.")

According to Distressed Debt Investing, Ubisoft paid $3.2 million for South Park and $2.5 million for THQ Montreal, Koch Media paid $5.8 million for Metro and $22.3 million for Volition and Crytek paid $500,000 for Homefront. No bids were placed for Vigil.

Polygon reports that SEGA bid $26.6 million for Relic, and a second-place bid came from Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media, who offered $26.3 million. The site also reports that Take-Two paid $10.8 million for Evolve, with a second place bid for $250,000 coming from Turtle Rock itself.



Also,

Sources indicate WWE game license to be acquired by Take Two, parent company of 2K


Not that I have played one in a long time but 2K could probably make a mean WWE game.


Darksiders developer Vigil Studios did not get any buyers so it is shut down. No Darksiders 3 I guess. RIP

Crytek did indeed buy the Homefront franchise.

Now that this is over, maybe they will hurry up and get CoH2 out in Beta.

Been missing that game since COHO was shut down.

Uh, if anything it will delay the game even longer. The new owners stressed that they wanted the IPs to follow a new plan.

re: THQ titles are being auctioned off today
Probably but one of the hold ups was the publisher being in limbo. You can release a game if you have no publisher or it is plastered with THQ throughout.

The game is pretty far along in development and I hope Sega doesn't screw with this one too much.

I can see future COH titles adhering to a different plan more than this one.

I was reading another site that said at this time the biggest hold will be how long it takes the bankruptcy courts to approve the sales and then after the license transfers will take a while.
