The lights are on
THQ sold off most of its larger assets with its Chapter 11 case earlier this year, but there are still a few leftover properties that THQ is ready to sell off including Darksiders, Red Faction, and Worms, among others.
THQ will open up the bidding on April 1, and shut it down on April 15. There are six bundles available for bidding. THQ says that it has already spoken to many interested parties, and it expects that the auction will have a lot of bids.
You can see the full list of available bundled properties by heading to page two.

I really hope some buys the good games from this. All those crap games one the list goes to show why the failed.
Their is a lot good franchises I would like to see bought. Darksiders is the one I am most interested in though.
ubisoft for darksiders coz they have great form with 3rd person titles, if you remove SC double agent on 360
I really hope that Red Faction and Darksiders go to a good home. I love Red Faction, and Darksiders is pretty cool. And some of the smaller titles looked really fun too. I am very sorry for those who are out of work, and I wish them the best of luck with finding a new home as well.
My mind boggles at what/who might pick up Darksiders. Obviously, Crytek USA has said they're not going to do it, so it falls to someone else. Platinum Games; I hope they do it. While they'd turn it into anime nonsense (in terms of storytelling), a Platinum-developed Darksiders 3 would certainly have the gameplay chops I'd love to see. But tons of other studios could make a great third game, and publishers who need a darker action franchise could do great things too by snatching it up.
Someone like Warner Bros Interactive - with their wealth of DC Comics talent - could pick up the "Joe Mad ball" and run with it, and they have studios like Rocksteady who could develop an amazing melee action game. Team Ninja and Tecmo also could do something great. Ninja Theory and Capcom as well, and this time, a bunch of stupid fanboys wouldn't care if Ninja Theory changed the main character (it's time to get to the next two Horsemen anyway). Heck, even EA Visceral could nab it - replace the non-franchise-starter that Dante's Inferno was.
It's sad that no one picked up Darksiders during the first sale, but I'm excited it's going to be sold now! There's a lot of potential in how this shakes out.
Don't really care about the other things though. Totally forgot Destroy All Humans was even a thing...
OMG!!!..I hope we get a great developer to pick up Destroy All Humans n foes a new reboot for the next gen consoles and make it more mature and not so cartoony..Please!!! Someone pick it up
I still miss THQ. I don't miss those shovelware games they made like Jeopardy, but I'm sad that there won't be another game in the deBlob franchise (although another company could make one). Does this also mean that other companies can buy their shovelware titles?
I think im going to bid on lot 4
Somebody MUST pick up Darksiders! I don't know who would be good for the franchise. Just so long as there's a chance we'll get more games in the series.
Darksiders deserve a great home. Kratos could use a tag team buddy in the form of Death the Kinslayer.
I'm almost at the end of Darksiders 1 (just gotta collect the pieces of the Armageddon Blade). I didn't realize it was such a long game. Plus the combat puts God of War to shame.
I really hope someone picks up Darksiders and finishes the franchise.
MS could buy Darksiders and put it in it's pile of unused IP's. There's a place right next to Mech Assault that looks comfy.
Always sad to see a good developer go out......but hopefully these titles will find a good home.
I really hope companies pick up a lot of these bundles. So many games that I don't want to see disappear. And I will miss THQ.
