While notable intellectual properties like Saints Row, Metro, and even Homefront have been auctioned off by THQ prior to its full closure, that doesn't account for everything. What about, for instance, the WWE license? And even though Vigil is being shut down, how about the Darksiders IP? One would expect that someone would jump on such an opportunity. Sources have told IGN that none other than Take-Two Interactive has secured the rights to WWE.

It's unclear what the deal ended up being, but it's probable that, if the reports are true, we'll hear official word from Take-Two before too long here. Interestingly, the @WWE Games Twitter account has reassured that "there WILL continue to be WWE Games. Stay tuned for more information and some exciting news!"

That's certainly something. There are still a lot of unanswered questions, and only time will tell how messy this situation ultimately becomes. I'm hopeful that some of these missing IPs can be snatched up. In a staff-wide email to THQ employees, it was noted that "They will remain part of the Chapter 11 case. We will make every effort to find appropriate buyers, if possible."
