Or rather they're going to close the studio if a sale isn't completed in - to quote what THQ's Julie MacMedan said to Crispy Gamer - the “near future.” This is part of their plans to cut $220 million in costs after nearly $200 million losses in Q4 last year. Creators of Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends, if this is actually the end, it'll inevitably be a big huge loss for gaming.
