Ubisoft Planning to Grab Hold of THQ's Assets

Ubisoft Planning to Grab Hold of THQ

THQ filed for bankruptcy earlier this week and there are rumblings that French studio Ubisoft are keen to step in.

Sources speaking to MCV have noted how there are discussions between both THQ and Ubisoft, perhaps looking at more specific projects. If Ubisoft did lap these up, the home of Just Dance and Assassin's Creed will also have the rights to popular franchises like WWE, Saints Row, Red Faction and Darksiders.

THQ are continuing as normal during the transition period, with studios and games in development going ahead as planned - currently in the hands of investment group Clearlake as a temporary owner.

I was thinking the other day that WWE 13 needs a new dev, but i wasn't really hoping that Ubisoft would pick this up....

It is a shame but THQ have just shoveled out games in the last decade, nothing really worth owning.

Certainly no guarantee, but Ubisoft buying them up is probably the best outcome if any of these games has a shot at coming to Nintendo systems.
