More details coming on Relic buy, says Sega


Sega has released a statement confirming that it will release more information on its move for Relic Entertainment in the coming days.

Sega bought the Company Of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn Of War developer for $26.6m, narrowly outbidding Bethesda owner Zenimax, which bid $26.3m.

“It is true that Sega took part in the bidding of all shares of THQ Canada Inc. and THQ’s IPs related to the titles developed by THQ Canada Inc,” says the statement. “Sega won the bid as the court announced and the deal will be closed tomorrow, after which Sega will release detailed information.”
