The lights are on
Update: IGN is now reporting that Take Two will be acquiring the WWE license.
THQ no longer exists as a company, and we've even learned exactly how much each of its properties and developers cost. One thing we don't know, however, is exactly what will become of the lucrative WWE license.
Wrestling blog Cageside Seats reported last month that THQ owes Vince McMahon's company $45 million dollars, and that the eccentric WWE chairman is "furious" about the situation (weird...he's usually so level-headed).
Rumors have been swirling today about Electronic Arts purchasing the wrestling license, but it's far from confirmed. We'll update you as soon as official word comes out.

Whoa.... This THQ death is affecting alotta companies...
vince mc looks so upset but for 45mill gone i look like that too lol
If Vince Mcmahon worked at THQ the layoffs would be very entertaining.
My brother and I just bought WWE '13 on Saturday and are loving it. Really hope that isn't the last in the series. :(
Damn and they are so close to making the best WWE game ever. Hopefully they don't stop making them.
As long as you care Dan, I do too.......to some extent
I've been thinking that someone else could handle this better than THQ. I love most of the WWE games that they made but idk. Anyways, hopefully whoever picks it up will do a good job.
At least THQ went out with a bang. WWE '13 is fantastic and one of the best wrestling games ever made.
Bring back the AKI-engine! Finally WWE games have a chance to be entertaining again.
Vince looks like he just saw Chris Benoit. Of course since this pic is from a Wrestlemania 23 press conference perhaps he did. Since that whole ordeal went down a few months later.
