Sad breaking news here, I will just post from Polygon:
“Struggling video game publisher THQ announced today that the company has entered into a purchase agreement with a bidder to acquire “substantially all of the assets of THQ’s operating business, including THQ’s four owned studios and games in development.” THQ has also filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in a Delaware court, the company says, to facilitate the sale of the publisher’s owned studios and current games in development.”
This sucks, flat out, it just sucks. THQ has been a studio with really great games such as Saints Row, Darksiders, and Metro, and also have really solid titles in the future such as South Park, Company of Heroes 2, and the sequels to Saints Row and Metro. Now they have been struggling for awhile, but this seems to be it. I can only hope a studio such as Square Enix purchases their properties and not a company such as EA or Activision.
