Though the Delaware Bankruptcy court judge has yet to rule on the sale of THQ's franchises and assets to the highest bidder, a number of employees from THQ and its subsidiary developers are bidding the company farewell on Twitter.
The tweets in question are coming from former employees from all facets of the company; from THQ proper, and in-house developers like Relic and Vigil. Members of development teams, executives and PR leads for the publisher are all departing the company, according to the missives:
It's been great almost 2 years with THQ... Best of luck to all my awesome co-workers, we know how close we were to rocking it big time.— Mathew Everett (@sledgehammer70) January 23, 2013
Anyone looking for a designer? =)— Ben Cureton (@verytragic) January 23, 2013
Aaaaaand that's a wrap. If you know anyone interested in hiring a Marketing/PR specialist, feel free to give me a shout!— Neal Pabon (@NealPabon) January 23, 2013
1 year, 10 months. It's been great working at THQ. I wish my co-workers the best.— Craig (@Craig_Law) January 23, 2013
And that's a wrap. It's been great 3-year ride with THQ, good luck to everyone moving forward.— Jeremy Greiner (@JG_CHEFS) January 23, 2013
It's not known how many employees from the publisher and its subsidiaries will lose their jobs, nor is it confirmed where their respective franchises will be going next. Those details will shake out in the coming hours as the results of THQ's auction are revealed — we'll have those details for you as our reporter in the courtroom receives them.
