    [PSU] Court filing reveals Saints Row, Darksiders, MX vs. ATV likely sold at auction

    Your friendly neighborhood PSU staff, finding stories and breaking the news:

    http://www.psu.com/a018069/Court-fil...at-THQ-auction

    Excerpt:

    The mystery of which THQ franchises are being sold at auction today may be solved. Mere moments ago, we reported on the legal action being taken by South Park Digital Studios to protect and retain rights to South Park: The Stick of Truth, an Obsidian-developed role-playing game based on the hit TV show. Closer examination of the complaint filed in the US Bankruptcy Court of Delaware by South Park Digital Studios may reveal which THQ franchises are up for grabs.

    The complaint is addressed to THQ Inc., et al., Debtors, and begins as follows: "South Park Digital Studios LLC (“Licensor”) submits this preliminary objection and reservation of rights with respect to the Debtors’ proposed asset sale . . .". A footnote on the first page elaborates on the et al. notation, which refers to THQ, Inc. and all other Debtors in question. The other Debtors are: THQ Digital Studios Phoenix, Inc., THQ Wireless, Inc., Volition, Inc., and Vigil Games
    How does everyone feel about this? Sad to see Saints Row and Darksiders (possibly) go? Glad that Company of Heroes and others were spared?

    Personally, I'm OK as long as South Park: The Stick of Truth makes it through unscathed.

    We'll most likely find out within a few days or a week.

    Hmm I see. Very interesting. Such talent behind these games I'd hate to see them go. Hopefully ubisoft or someone picks them up

    i posted this in the THQ thread, so it would make no point making a another thread
    Plato and Aristotle, a detail of The School of Athens, a fresco by Raphael. Aristotle gestures to the earth, representing his belief in knowledge

    A fair point, although this thread was posted earlier. The topics being discussed in the bankruptcy thread don't really relate to the declaration of bankruptcy anymore, so this thread could help make things less unwieldy.

    as always, the answer is simple : pay the workers, the CEO will get something if there's enough money, these guys are easily replaceable, but without workers no company can go on

    Relice was purchased by Sega so now CoH is with Sega.

    I'm hoping that the Homeworld IP is also with Relic as THQ purchased the rights back from Vivendi.
