The lights are on
THQ has officially notified the SEC that CEO Brian J. Farrell and president Jason Rubin have officially been terminated. What did this mean exactly? It means that THQ is that much closer to no longer existing. No one was holding out hope that THQ would be able to recuperate after its closure and the selling off of its owned properties, but it has not completely dissolved just yet.
We spoke with the now former president Jason Rubin shortly after THQ sold off most of its assets. You can check out the interview here.

Sad day. I hope they can find jobs in the industry, which I'm almost certain they will.
Goodbye THQ. Good luck Rubin.
RIP THQ. And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
Very sad. Wish them the best of luck. I will really miss THQ.
Same pic from the magazine interview back when he came aboard. Must have been lots of fun, being the captain of a sinking ship.
I wanna see where Rubin goes next...
Hopefully we'll find out soon where THQ's remaining franchises end up. Best of luck to Brian and Jason...it's a tough job market :(
Feel sorry for the the people who lost their jobs, not the bigwigs. The CEOs of corporations are far more likely to be well off than the ”little people” in the companies that go under. Don't let this artucke make you forget about the people who made these games and how they are now screwed.
everytime i see THQ stuff i'm gonna be sad :/
now they see the power of my spells. im like freddy kruger to THQ... one down more to go.
Guess the captain goes down with the ship. . .
Good bye THQ. They made some of the best games I've played. I hope all these people can find new jobs.
Well, they had a good, strong year till now.
I had wished that THQ would some how impossibly survive, but I guess it's true, "All good things come to an end."
