THQ plans to sell off Darksiders, Red Faction, Homeworld, more in May


The THQ sell-off will continue this Spring as the publisher has announced that four major franchises will go up for auction as well as two compilations of lesser franchises.

Darksiders (which went unsold at the initial THQ auction), Red Faction, Homeworld, and the MX racing franchise have all been put on the block by THQ. The company will also sell the rights to a package of original properties (including Big Beach Sports, Destroy All Humans!, Summomner, and others) and a package of licensed games (Marvel Super Hero, Supreme Commander, Worms, and others). A new owner for each franchise will be chosen sometime in May.

If you’ve ever wanted to own a formerly top-selling video game franchise, you should get in touch with THQ by emailing them at by April 1. But be aware, you’ll be expected to show proof of funds in case your bid is selected by the creditors committee.

Of course, how much could something like Destroy All Humans! (which, admittedly, I love) actually go for?
