THQ to be sold piecemeal, EA a potential buyer


This THQ business is getting more complicated by the day. Initially, one company (Clearlake Capital Group) was going to buy all of THQ's assets for $60 million after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but the outright purchase was blocked by a judge.

Amidst rumors that Ubisoft was interested in buying up the remaining assets, we now have a much more interesting situation on our hands -- companies can buy up assets individually, and EA is interested. So interested, in fact, that they reportedly visited THQ to survey potential purchases.

Right now, we have no clear idea what is actually happening with the developers and studios themselves, but in this maelstrom of bad news for THQ, I hope everyone is well. The auction date is set for January 22nd, 2013.
