The opposite actually. THQ is trying hard to make it look as if it's alive and has a future to drum up some extra money (or even sell it's assets at an inflated price). This kind of backstage bomb can only hurt the value of their IP assets. Not to mention anyone with access to that kind of info has to be under NDA.
So even if this guy is right, he's still a moron for saying it out loud.
This. This guy is either in serious breach of an NDA and doing massive harm to his clients, and as such, when his identity is discovered he will never work in finance ever again, or he's lying.
