THQ to close its Australian office, distribution to be handled by AIE

THQ is closing its Australian office in Melbourne and has signed with All Interactive Entertainment (AIE), a subsidiary of All Interactive Distribution, to handle distribution of THQ games.

The move will see the departure of another publisher from Australian shores, with Sega shutting down its publishing office in Sydney earlier this year.

Ian Curran, THQ's EVP of global publishing said: "The evolution of our distribution model in the Asia Pacific region will allow us to increase our reach with a lower cost model. AIE is a trusted business partner with whom we have worked with for many years as our distributor in New Zealand. We believe the company will benefit from AIE's backing and comprehensive distribution network across Australia."

As part of the distribution strategy, THQ will be closing its publishing office in Melbourne in the coming months.

We have reached out to THQ for comment and update this story when more informaton is available.
