    THQ Is Dying/Dead

    Gaming Everything » Blog Archive » Rumor: THQ all but dead, cancels 2014 games, looking for a buyer


    It seems that THQ is in a state of flux right at the moment. The company’s 2014 game lineup has been cancelled, and the publisher is currently trying to find a buyer.

    Kevin Dent, who has been sending out a slew of tweets about the situation, said that “THQ are offering themselves to Asian firms to increase value!”

    Games Workshop’s MMO has been canned. This was almost certainly Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online.

    Other THQ projects, such as Darksiders II, Metro: The Last Light, and Devil’s Third are presumably still in development.

    Apparently, The Game Workshops MMO has been cancelled by THQ

    @PeterSkerritt they cancelled all of their 2014

    Also heard that THQ are offering themselves to Asian firms to increase value!

    In addition, word is spreading that THQ has returned IP to Disney AFTER paying the advance, with no refund.

    Damn, that sucks. It's never good to see a gaming company cancel any of it's projects, let alone the entire 2014 lineup due to them finding a buyer. I'm glad that Darksiders II is still in development, but I wonder if this will have any impact on the game itself?

    Nooo THQ were a pretty good developer! Their post release support for games like Space Marine was really good .

    I wonder what's going to happen with the Warhammer license now then?

    Sad to see THQ possibly going though ;(

    Shame really, they developed/published some great games. Good to know Darksiders 2 and Metro: Last Light will most likely be coming out.

    Aww this is a kick in the ass. Not only ALL their 2014 games, and their WWE franchise of games. I hope a good publisher can buy and keep the WWE games running smoothly. Atleast Yukes is still in development for the games. Man, I remember THQ and Yukes first WWE game back in 2000. WWF SmackDown! I believe it was called. Ahh.. memories.....
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    Just a thought, but would they be able to sell some franchises/IPs to get some extra cash?

    I think they can, but they'll lose the rights to those in the process. Maybe wrong on this one

    I think the only thing I've really really enjoyed from them was their WWE games. Darksiders was alright but I'm not in a big hurry to play the sequel. Hopefully they will figure something out. Hate to see any developers hurting.

    Update: THQ PR got back to us and said they haven't heard anything about the rumored 2014 cancellations.
