THQ Buys Midway San Diego

Midway Sells San Diego Studio To THQ, Sells German-French Divisions has more on the breakup of Midway Games, describing the disposition of a couple of the studios not acquired by Warner Bros. They point to an SEC filing indicating Midway has sold its San Diego studio to THQ, and its French and German divisions to smaller entities. Word is THQ will offer employment to at least 40 of the 100 employees at the San Diego studio, though they also point out: "However, specifically excluded from the bankruptcy purchase by THQ is the contract with the TNA iMPACT! video game in development at the studio, as well as the third-party tools such as Unreal Engine being licensed for the game's creation."
