It was all but official last night, but now it is final: THQ has been almost completely sold off to five competitors for $72 million.
U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge Mary F. Walrath today signed the motion approving yesterday's suggested sale of most of THQ's assets to multiple buyers, according to court documents obtained by Polygon.
- Sega will purchase Relic for $26.6 million, with Zenimax acting as a back-up bidder at $26.3 million.
- Koch Media will purchase Volition and Metro: Last Light for $22.3 million and $5.9 million respectively.
- Crytek will purchase Homefront for $500,000.
- Take Two will purchase Evolve for $10.9 million, outbidding the game's developer Turtle Rock.
- Ubisoft will purchase THQ Montreal for $2.5 million and South Park: The Stick of Truth for $3.3 million.
Vigil, developers of Darksiders, and other unnamed assets and intellectual properties will continue in the Chapter 11 process, according to the release. The company plans to continue to seek "appropriate buyers, if possible."
