The excruciatingly slow death of THQ has finally ended with *almost* all of the publisher’s assets sold off to new buyers. The results of the auction, which included games like South Park: The Stick of Truth, Darksiders, Metro, and Warhammer, among others, as well as THQ’s subsidiaries (Relic, THQ Montreal, Volition, and Vigil) have finally been made public. For the most part, the results aren’t that that surprising, but there were definitely a few intriguing pairings. More after the jump.
These results are from Distressed Debt Investing, who is overseeing the auction:
Homefront: $500,000 (Crytek)
Metro: $5.8 million (Koch Media)
South Park: $3.2 million (Ubisoft)
Relic: $26.6 million (Sega)
THQ Montreal: $2.5 million (Ubisoft)
Evolve: $11 million (Take Two)
Volition: $22.3 million (Koch Media)
You may have noticed Darksiders developer Vigil Games isn’t on the list. That’s because, surprisingly, no bids were made for the studio. This means Vigil and the Darksiders franchise will probably be no more. That’s hugely disappointing.
Homefront is worth significantly less than I would’ve thought it would be, but I’m looking forward to seeing what Crytek does with it. Interestingly, Evolve, the mystery project from Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock, ended up being the most expensive IP on the list. That value has me a little more excited for it.
But seriously? No bids for Vigil? You heartless bastards.
