THQ is apparently expect “a vigorous sale” when it comes to picking up the last few remaining titles and franchises still in the hands on the now-defunct publisher. Darksiders, Red Faction and Homeworld are just some of the IPs up for grabs in an upcoming auction due to start April 15.
Six distinct packages are to be offered: a Red Faction package with rights to all the games therein, a Darksiders package, a Homeworld package, an MX package, an ‘Internal Titles’ package (de Blog, Destroy All Humans! and so on) and a ‘Licensed Titles’ package (which, as you may expect, contains licensed titles such as Costume Quest, Let’s Ride and Jeopardy).
More than 100 expressions of interest have apparently already been received.
Last month, THQ sold off all its major studios, including delivering Relic to SEGA, Volition to Koch Media Group, and THQ Montreal to Ubisoft.
