Ashes to ashes, et cetera

Polygon has dug up court documents pertaining to the final auction of properties beloning to shuttered publisher THQ.
Final bids were due on April 15, and the offers will be presented in court and potentially finalised sometime in May. Although the documents don’t reveal who bid on what, and for how much, they did note that “certain of the IP” attracted 17 bids, and the sales could bring in up to $7 million if approved.
Bids have been accepted since February. The six lots on offer were the Darksiders series; the Red Faction series; the Homeworld series; the MX series; Other Owned Software, including Destroy All Humans!, Summoner, and more; and Other Licensed Software, including Marvel Super Hero, Supreme Commander, Worms, and more.
We know for sure where one of these lots did not end up; teamPixel was unable to remain competitive in its attempts to save Homeworld.
