Final Fallout Of The THQ Properties
As known THQ had quite a fallout, where many of their IP properties and developers were sold off and bought by various different companies, but there were still quite a few of those properties left such as Red Fraction, and Homeworld. Many of the IPs and developers where lucky to have a company pick them up post auction and are ready to continue development but for those who were left out had a second and final bid that took place around April 1st to April 15th.
Now we get to find out what will become of the last remains of THQ.
The $6.55 million sale of the IP assets breaks down as follows:
• $4.9 million from Nordic Games, a Sweden-based video games publisher, for Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs ATV, other owned software including Destroy all Humans! and Summoner, and other licensed software which includes Marvel Super Hero Squad and Supreme Commander.
•$1.35 million from Gearbox Software for Homeworld,

The biggest winner definitely seems to be Noridac Games who acquired the most of the Intellectual Properties from THQ. They have already asked fans for feedback on the future of many of the IP’s and Gearbox are already planing on reselling the Homeworld games and plan on making a new game in the series.
