If I had known that was an acceptable bid, I'd have bought the bloody thing

THQ sold the rights to Freespace to Interplay for $7,500, according to court documents.
There were two Freespace games, in 1998 and 1999, developed by Volition (which is now owned by Deep Silver). The space combat sims were published by Interplay back in the fading of its glory days, and continue to be sold on services such as GOG.com.
It’s not clear what Interplay intends to do with the property now it has it back in its clutches; lately the publisher hasn’t done much besides trade off its back catalogue, although it has talked about resurrecting Black Isle Studios, a lauded RPG developer, via crowdfunding.
