    Long enough to finish the games currently in development and sell them. After that .....

    Hopefully Metro, CoH2, South Park have good sales to show good revenue and growth. Has been and still the only way to keep these studios together. <Optimist

    I will at least be buying CoH2 on release. Still need to get around to Metro. South Park has appeal, but not sure at full price.

    They're not looking at redundancies or anything. The will continue to run as normal. They're all on a release schedule so nothing is going to change really. The key thing to focus on is that there's a 30 day window where in someone else could come in and outbid them.

    Well, for the time being everything is fine, but once those games are out of the gate, it's possible the studios will be gutted of non-essential personnel so as to be sold with relevant IPs and "creating developers" in one package to potential buyers. Hopefully that won't happen and studios will be sold as a whole.

    A message for the fans from Jason Rubin.

    tl;dr: MGM also filed for Ch11 and now they released The Hobbit and Skyfall! We're doing great too!

    Does anyone actually believe Clearlake's going to fund this company beyond South Park's release?

    Post from Jason Rubin going into the details a bit. Fairly optimistic tbh.

    Heh ninja'd by kicks it seems :)


    Well they're going to be seeing profits coming in from SP for sure, and Metro LL and CoH2 should do well also. As long as the companies generating money then they've every reason to support them.

    Assuming it tanks? No one I guess.

    If it's a sucess, then there's no reason to not keep the machine running until at least CoH and Metro ship as those are sure sellers from successful franchises.

    Dunno about CoH2, the first game bombed and THQ reduced DoW2's budget in response.

    If it bombed they wouldn't be making a sequel.

    I think they could. If SP is profitable, if CoH is profitable and if Metro is profitable then why would they gut the company? THQ is one of the last publisher names that wont immediately cause the internet to get up in arms about and call for their demise for being evil/corrupt (see Activision and EA). They made a mistake with the uDraw tablet, over estimating it's ability to sell on the PS3 and 360, but they still have their name and their IPs. They still have the WWE license, the 40k license and good IPs like Saints Row and CoH.

    As long as Clearlake are making a profit off them or see the potential for profit I'd imagine they'll keep THQ.

    Company of Heroes bombed? Says who?

    I think you meant to say "I did not like the game", which is fair. Saying the game failed, is making us question your credibility.

    lolwut?

    Company of Heroes was one of their best properties. It beat sales records when it came out, and propelled them to their most profitable year ever.

    They're in the shitter right now because Homefront and Red Faction: Armageddon were flops.

    And uDraw! We must always be willing to stop and laugh at uDraw.

    What does all of this means for warhammer 40k: Dark Millenium, I can't seem to be able to find any information about a cancellation or anything by the way. In the list of the games actually being made Vigil was on a project named atlas, there wasn't anyhting about Dark Millenium.

    Does anyone here have any information?

    A quick internet search gives this as the last news on that front.

    I hope to hell that THQ is saved or sells there IPs off intelligently. To lose the Darksiders franchise, Relic's incredible work, Metro and the other games I have missed.... it would be terrible. They are one of the few publishers that I truly respect and like (although no one has been able to get even close to Paradox). Hopefully they find a buyer or some other way out of the mess they are in.

    So they made expansions for it along with trying to convert it to F2P?

    F2P might have bombed, not the original game itself.
