    THQ is auctioning off their IPs and such. That means it's like 3DO in 2003 when MicroSoft, Ubisoft, Namco, and Crave bought out all of 3DO's IPs except a few. So yeah I won't be surprised if the big ones buys out THQ IPs and projects they do to publish it. So don't be surprised if you see South Park The Stick of Truth being published by say EA in the future.

    Yeah the Auction is supposedly the 22nd of the month. If the WWE franchise gets sold I hope it is not to EA.

    If it's not an IP they just put their logo on it unless they want something change from it and such. Hell Ubisoft bought the Might and Magic IP and just basically did was recreated a whole new universe and 86ed the previous universe it had. As for the IPs THQ has to somehow pay back their creditors so why not just sell off some IPs and hope for the best. Still either way THQ is going to be dead in the water like 3DO or a former shell of itself like Interplay.

    What horrible news. I know of a few titles that are THQ made. Saints row comes to mind. Its sad to see a company that makes good games goes bankrupt.

    I also agree. I dont want EA to ruin certain titles. Not all EA titles are bad, just some of them.
