Double Fine shows interest in THQ assets
« on: January 11, 2013, 05:24:53 PM »
As some of you may be aware, THQ filed for bankruptcy recently (which is a shame, because they had a lot of good IPs under their belt), and on January 22nd they'll be holding an auction for their assets. those assets include both studios and IPs. Some expected names have come up, including Activision, EA and Ubisoft and... Doublefine? Yep! It turns out that Double fine has requested paperwork on the proceedings. Does that mean Doublefine has an interest in buying some THQ properties? what does everyone think? It would be interesting to see double fine branch out to a game like Red Faction (highly unlikely, but you never know what will happen).

Saints Row ain't going anywhere; it's arguably the single most valuable property THQ has. Saints Row 4 is still coming. I'd bet money on that. It's the only open-world game that has ever stood a chance of competing directly against GTA. Furthermore, I think Volition will be bought with Saints Row. Better not to mess with success. if it works, don't change the team.

Everyone does. They're not going to let that go. Saints row's popularity is just going to grow at this point.
