More THQ IP Sold

Subject to the approval of the bankruptcy court, the results of the auction of more of the assets of defunct publisher THQ have been revealed besides word from earlier that Gearbox now owns Homeworld. In this we learn that Gearbox paid $1.35 million for the RTS series, Nordic games paid almost $5 million for several IP, including Darksiders, Red Faction, and Supreme Commander, and someone wanted the Drawn to Life franchise:

The $6.55 million sale of the IP assets breaks down as follows:

  • $4.9 million from Nordic Games Licensing AB, a Swedish-based video games publisher, for Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs ATV, Other Owned Software (includes Destroy all Humans!, Summoner and more), and Other Licensed Software (includes Marvel Super Hero Squad, Supreme Commander and more);
  • $1.35 million from Gearbox Software, LLC, a Plano, Tex.-based developer of interactive entertainment, for Homeworld; and
  • $.3 million from 505 Games Srl, an Italian video game publisher, for Drawn to Life and Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter.

The company expects the Bankruptcy Court to hear the sales motions on May 13, 2013 and to finalize the sale transactions thereafter.
