THQ Signs Turtle Rock

THQ announces they have signed on to publish the next title from Turtle Rock Studios, developers of the original Left 4 Dead who were briefly known as Valve South. Details are sparse, but word is the new game will be an ambitious first-person shooter. "We’re thrilled to be working with THQ," said Phil Robb, COO, Turtle Rock Studios. "This project is the most ambitious thing we’ve ever attempted, and we’re inspired by the support THQ has shown to help us realize that vision. We’re going to take the first person shooter experience to a whole new level, and we can’t wait to show the game for the first time in the months ahead."

Why would they back them financially if they left the nest? Makes no sense.

To retain equity in the company and generate profits from their projects. This happens in many industries all the time. You give the company some seed money to get started and keep like a 30% stake so that as long as they keep making money, you keep making money, often many times your original investment. But that said, the guys from Turtle Rock likely made (and are probably still making) so much off sales from Left 4 Dead that they might just be bankrolling themselves.
