The lights are on
THQ's Chapter 11 filing has revealed the titles of four of the company's current projects, including the game Patrice Désilets is working on at THQ Montreal.
Polygon ferreted the game titles out of THQ's legal documents, which reveal what each company is working on. They are as follows:
While the documents list the names as working titles, THQ has issued trademarks for both "Evolve" and "1666." Earlier today, THQ president Jason Rubin tweeted that Company of Heroes 2, Metro: Last Light, and South Park: The Stick of Truth are all still on schedule, so hopefully these four games also won't be affected by the sale.

I will give THQ hope this year.
Too bad, really sorry to hear about this. Even though THQ's games haven't been selling too well, they're really a great company.
I'm actually intrigued by those 4 games...
I think Stick of Truth has a great chance at being the crucial hit that THQ was hoping for with SR3 and DS2. I'm certainly eagerly awaiting that release.
Aside from that I think they'd do well to draw the strings in a bit and scale down their scope to include more DLGs, which are at a price point where you can spend a lot less, but because of that smaller scale you still get an impressive, polished product. Most importantly, working on that smaller scale probably has a higher profit margin than even a successful triple-A title, and much much less risk (we know what happens when those triple-A's fall flat; their pubs file a Chapter 11).
seems some of the games looks interesting.
As long as Company of Heroes 2 comes out on time, then I'll be satisfied.
If they cancel Metro LL and South Park I'll go game 7 in Vancouver on their studio.
I wish the best for THQ. It's a shame that all this has to happen to them. But I'm glad they're working very hard to keep all these games on track, even during all this struggle.
