THQ Assets to be Sold

THQ Logo Only this afternoon we posted about how much Dunk is looking forward to Company of Heroes 2 and the news now is that the assets owned by publisher THQ are to be auctioned off on January 22nd.

After third parties objected to an attempt by investment firm Clearlake Capital to buy THQ as a whole, a Delaware court has reached an agreement that bids can be placed for certain assets owned by the organisation. I can’t possibly comment on what will be sold or who will be interested in buying but I know that these are the games/franchises in development or recently released by THQ and are likely to be affected:

  • Company of Heroes 2
  • Metro: Last Light
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth
  • Saints Row: The Third
  • WWE
  • Homefront 2

And the studios:

Sad times. I guess we’ll find out what happens on the 22nd.
