Share And Comment

THQ or what’s left of it has announced that it has completed the bidding and sale process on certain of its intellectual properties (IP) with three buyers emerging to pay $6.55 million for the six available lots, subject to Bankruptcy Court approval. The company is filing its motions today with the Bankruptcy Court to obtain approval of these proposed sales. I’m really excited to see what Gearbox eventually does with the Homeworld IP.


The $6.55 million sale of the IP assets breaks down as follows:

  • $4.9 million from Nordic Games Licensing AB, a Swedish-based video games publisher, for Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs ATV, Other Owned Software (includes Destroy all Humans!, Summoner and more), and Other Licensed Software (includes Marvel Super Hero Squad, Supreme Commander and more);
  • $1.35 million from Gearbox Software, LLC, a Plano, Tex.-based developer of interactive entertainment, for Homeworld; and
  • $.3 million from 505 Games Srl, an Italian video game publisher, for Drawn to Life and Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter.

The company expects the Bankruptcy Court to hear the sales motions on May 13, 2013 and to finalize the sale transactions thereafter.
