The company has designated six lots of IP titles for bidding:

  1. Darksiders;
  2. Red Faction;
  3. Homeworld;
  4. MX;
  5. Other Owned Software, including Big Beach Sports, Destroy All Humans!, Summoner, and more; and
  6. Other Licensed Software, including Marvel Super Hero, Supreme Commander, Worms, and more.

Initial bids must be submitted by April 1, 2013. Final bids are required by April 15. The company, in consultation with its unsecured creditors committee, will determine the best and highest bid for each lot and designate a back-up bid. In May, the sales will be presented to the Court for final approval.THQ Inc. has received more than 100 expressions of interest in purchasing various titles and therefore they don’t anticipate any trouble moving these assets.

Last month, the Court approved the sales of three of THQ Inc.’s owned studios and games in development, as well as Evolve, a working title under development at Turtle Rock Studios, Homefront 2, Metro: Last Light and South Park: The Stick of Truth. Under the terms of the agreements with the successful and approved bidders, the THQ estate received approximately $72 million.
