THQ is No More, Studios and IPs Being Sold!

Not sure if people are following this, but it means big things for some of the video game industries biggest or most-anticipated IPs (Saint's Row, the upcoming South Park game, and more)

The original story is here:

But, basically, it means that all of the studios and IPs under THQ are being auctioned to various studios.

Strangely, nobody bought Vigil Games (creators of the Darksiders series) at the auction.
They've had to close down and look for other jobs now.

Platinum Games said on twitter that they'd like to buy them, but they haven't taken any steps towards doing so.
