    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.

    on a slightly different note: I get the impression that Steam is doing everything it can to help keep THQ a float. They've had numerous sales for things like Metro, Darksiders, and Saints Row 3, and again today I see the midweek madness (the only deal) is Darksiders 2.

    Steam sales are publisher approved. It's most likley THQ that's pushing those titles at lower prices. Can't hurt really...

    Steam wont do a sale if the publisher doesn't wnat, and probably is also more likely to do a sale if the publisher asks for it. About it being the only midweek, wait for tomorrow, sometimes it takes them a day to unveil the second offer.

    THQ with Steam have always seemed to do lots of deep discounts, even before the past year or so of problems.

    I'm already bummed that there likely won't be a Darksiders 3--since sales apparently weren't great, which will have tarnished the IP even if they sell it off--but now I have to be worried there won't be a Dawn of War 3, too!? Here's hoping that the various THQ subsidiaries have been hard at work making backdoors for themselves.

    Darksiders 2 sold 1.4 million copies since launch. It's not bad, just not good enough given THQ's situation.

    Erm, wasn't Company of Heroes Relic & THQ? This is a fkin catastrophe if that franchise is doomed.

    Edit: Posted without realising how many pages there were.

    Even if THQ folds, the franchise will most likely be picked up along with the team. It's just a question of who does that. Sega would be great, EA would be a disaster.

    Actually, now that I think of it, SEGA getting the 40k license would be a wet dream come true. I know a few people at GW, they think highly of Relic and chances are the RTS licence for games might follow the studio in case of a breakup at THQ. Now imagine Creative Assembly getting to work on a proper Epic game.

    Sega is unlikely to be buying anything, considering they recently undertook a massive restructuring, albeit with a focus on digital distribution (making them, ironically, one of the better placed publishers out there for the future). Even if they are back on track this year, I imagine they wouldn't have the capital to do anything.

    As for EA buying them, it's certainly potentially bad, but it's that or perhaps nothing at all. I know I'd rather have the risk than a critical existence failure.

    Also, there's no question to THQ folding. It will. It's a matter of when, barring some sort of miracle. They have no money and are some $100m+ in debt.

    They just have to do everything Marko of Chaos did, but better.
    Who owns the fantasy Warhammer videogame license anyway?

    I'm not sure anyone does. Mark of Chaos had regional specific publishers and Warhammer Online is published by EA. There hasn't been that many fantasy warhammer games made in recent times. EA seem to have published the most fantasy warhammer games though, so perhaps if anyone owns it, it's them.

    I'm not sure. Bioware Mythic certainly have a warhammer license but thats probably MMO specific.

    Apparently GW published Julian Gollops Chaos, according to Wikipedia anyway.

    It used to be Namco Bandai. I'm not sure if it was a general licence or just strategy games.

    More to the subject:

    It seems the default was caused by downscaling in creditable assets. They still need to find money to balance the gap, but it's better than having an actual default on a credit line.

    Wow, so, yeah. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. I imagine we won't hear anything until after Christmas now, but I feel sorry for the people employed under or affiliated with THQ. This must be hell for them.

    Bets on how long Clearlake will keep it afloat?
