THQ Auction: Ubisoft, Sega, Take-Two, Crytek, Deep Silver all come away winners


The THQ asset auction concluded yesterday and the fate of the company was sealed as the cumulative bids for the publisher’s studios surpassed the $60 million offered by Clearlake Capitol Group. Here’s the complete list of who bought what and for how much:

Relic Entertainment (including Company of Heroes franchise)
Sega – $26.6 million

THQ Montreal (including 1666 and Underdog)
Ubisoft – $2.5 million

Evolve (Turtle Rock-developed FPS)
Take-Two Interactive – $10.894 million

Volition (and Saints Row franchise)
Deep Silver (Koch Media) – $22,312,925

Homefront franchise
Crytek – $544,218

Metro franchise
Deep Silver (Koch Media) – $5,877,551

South Park: The Stick of Truth
Ubisoft – $3,265,306

How this auction will affect the release dates of South Park: The Stick of Truth, Metro: Last Light, and Company of Heroes 2 (all were scheduled to be released within the next three months) remains to be seen.

Vigil Studios (and the Darksiders franchise) and the rights to produce games based on the WWE went unsold. Presumably, they’ll continue to be included with THQ’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
