THQ sell-off: Darksiders, Red Faction, Homeworld and more go up for sale
The last of THQ’s assets will be sold off by May, the bankrupt publisher has confirmed.
The next stage of the asset-stripping process splits THQs properties into six lots. They include Darksiders, Red Faction, Homeworld and the MX series, ‘Other owned software’ (including the Destroy All Humans games, de Blob and uDraw) and ‘licensed software’ (like Marvel Super Hero Squad and the Worms games).
Interested parties must bid for the remaining assets by April 1st, with final offers due on April 15th.
The fresh auctions follow the first round of sales, in which Koch Media acquired Volition, Saints Row and Metro, Sega bought Relic, Ubisoft snapped up THQ Montreal and the rights to publish Obsidian’s South Park: The Stick Of Truth and Crytek acquired the Homefront IP.
Take Two also bought new IP Evolve and later confirmed that it will take over publishing duties on the WWE series.
