The lights are on
With the demise of THQ now official, we're starting to learn more about who paid what for each of the publisher's franchises and developers.
Here are the numbers being reported from Distressed Debt Investing, who is overseeing the THQ auction:
Here's what the runner-up bids were for these properties and studios:

Wow. I hope Company of Heroes 2 still comes too. :3
That's alot of moneys. At least they are being auctioned off though instead of just being killed off.
Glad to see crytek got a hold of Homefront. Considering how long all of Crytek's other games are, they should be able to address my main problem with the first entry.
I think Ubisoft would've been better off with Volition.
Crytek sort of already had rights to make Homefront 2, so no wonder no one else bid for it.
I feel sort of bad for Turtle Rock. They're working on Evolve, and put a quarter of a million down to try and obtain publishing rights, but then Take Two just comes in with an $11 million bid.
Extremely sad nobody bought Vigil... bad way to start 2013...
I wish Ubisoft would have gotten Violition...
wow koch media, how rich.
I'm happy where all the games/studios ended up. I just hope SEGA doesn't ruin Warhammer. SEGA isn't the best when it comes to triple A titles.
I hope Ubisoft take good care of South Park and I really don't want this to ruin "the stick of truth" as I am really hyped for it :(
also hope Volition gets good care from Koch Media :D
its a pretty sad thing that just occured :( R.I.P. THQ
Crytek buying Homefront? Awesome. It'll have the same engine as Crysis and be awesome.
Damn, would have rather seen Rift in the hands of Zenimax :/
What is relic? I know all te other names.
