THQ Bankruptcy Auction Ends with $6 - $7 Million Total
Filed under: THQ, DARKSIDERS 2

The bankruptcy auction for THQ has come to an end, and its long list of properties have been sold off marking the official—and tragic—end to THQ's lengthy history in the video games and toy markets. 

The grand total is estimated to be between $6 million to $7 million divided between six sections of products.The sections were auctioned as the following:

Darksiders series

Homeworld series

MX series

Red Faction series

Other owned software (Destroy All Humans!)

Other licensed software (i.e. Supreme Commander)

The buyers of each haven't been publicized, but it's known that Crytek had a high level of interest in one or more products.

The conclusion of the court filing also contained insight into what the major breaking point of THQ was: Darksiders 2. The company publiclly struggled for years and was hoping the game would be enough to get it back on-track. It received positive reviews but its sales weren't enough to keep the company afloat.

I hope whoever bought the rights to Homeworld will actually make a new game. I loved Homeworld 1 and 2.
