The lights are on
If you had to pick a home for Darksiders, Saints Row, and the rest of THQ's game library, where would it be?
This is a serious question facing fans of THQ franchises considering each of them will be on the auction block come January 22. Warner Bros. Interactive, Electronic Arts, and Ubisoft are all reportedly kicking the tires on the struggling publisher's various projects, but nothing is stopping Activision, Take Two, or anyone else from bidding as well.
To see your favorite franchises thrive in the coming years, where would you like to see them land?
Email the author Matt Bertz, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
as long as multi-platform games remain multi-platform, then I'm happy.
Of course anyone but EA or Activision. I'd like to see Saints Row end up with WB.
Hmmm... Where to put Darksiders... Maybe Warner Bros. I don't really know. :)
Warner Bros. or Ubisoft, either on of those would be a good home for some of those franchise's.
Red Faction with ANYONE who will make it.
I would say between Warner Bros, Ubisoft, EA, Capcom or Activision. I couls also name Atlus. Even though many will disagree with me with EA, Activision and Capcom, I feel that they could have a home there. If they never bothered me, why not?
I have the most respect for Take-Two so they receive all of my bias. Can't say I could picture GTA and SR being published by the same company though haha.
How funny would it be for Ubisoft to get the IP that their former employee back stabbed them to work on?
been following THQ's downfall for months now.. I saw this day coming way back in July... They brought in Jason Rubin from Naughty Dog to try and save them, but it was way too late.. Darksiders didn't push enough to show boosts in sales and everything else is still in the works.
I'm hoping EA and Activision don't get any... But, Metro: Last Light and some other games actually were promising once they announced the core game strategy and the removal of children games mid 2012.. Things were looking promising. THQ just got to caught up financially and couldn't keep their heads above the tank.
Metro would be in good hands with square enix, or maybe even tripwire (red orchestra/killing floor)
I think Gearbox could do great things with Red Faction.
