There may be life for Darksiders and other unsold THQ franchises after allPosted: January 24, 2013
Fans of THQ’s Darksiders games can take some comfort in knowing that there is still hope left for the franchise, while properties on an indefinite hiatus, like Homeworld, may see a revival. This news comes shortly after the now former publisher THQ announced the sale of its assets in yesterday’s bankruptcy auction.
GameInformer asked THQ president Jason Rubin about the fate of some of the publisher’s unsold franchises, such as Darksiders and Red Faction, to which he responded, “There will be a separate process to sell off the back catalog and IP [intellectual property]. That process will take place in the coming weeks,” as pointed out by Joystiq.
Yesterday, THQ announced that it had raised $72 million in asset sales with several of its studios and upcoming games sold to publishers like Sega and Koch Media (better known for its Deep Silver publishing arm in the U.S.).
