Saw this earlier. It's really heartbreaking. I hope they survive this as they've published some of my favorite games. I'm really curious about whatever's going on financially in the background. They've released so many games that I thought were relatively successful, like the Saints Row series, Metro 2033, etc. Why are they doing so bad as a company?
@Sackyhack : I just don't think THQ is unique enough. Saints Row, Metro, and Company of Heroes has kind of all already been done before. Sure they added their own unique spin to most of them, and while they were quality games, they just didn't catch on as much as some of the others.
Homefront on the other hand was...okay. The graphics were gritty, and the mechanics were a little awkward. It just didn't feel smooth.
Although I do find it off that a company that released some solid titles, though not the most popular, is facing financial issues. Sounds to me like someone was throwing too much money away.
Seriously... how bad were their finances?!?! They raised $5M just A WEEK OR SO BACK, from the Humble THQ Bundle.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I think that this isn't just something that can be looked at from a "positive spin" but it is a positive thing its self.
The fact that they filed bankruptcy isn't good but since they'll be transitioning between the way their finances are managed and it won't impact consumers or their current releases and things will continue to go as planned it really just sounds like a way for them to keep doing what their doing but tweak it to be more financially succesful.
Metro: Last Light and South Park: Stick of Truth both look like they have the potential to be blockbuster titles when they come out
I know, right. I got the bundle myself.
I really enjoy playing Company of Heroes...I sure hope COH 2 stays through development.
