THQ assets sold for $72 million

News hit the wire that the US Bankruptcy Court has approved the sale of THQ's assets. The company will fetch around $72 million from the sales, and hopes to raise another $28 million from certain assets and other IP that was excluded from the sale. There may be some hope left for Darksiders, and the selling of THQ's assets may mean the return of various franchises that have been left in the freezer for many years.
However, this only seems to extend to the franchise. Vigil games, developer of Darksiders, received no bids. The studio was shut down, and the employees were laid off. We also learned that the studio had a game in the works codenamed Crawler. Bayonetta maker Platinum Games, the developer working on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, did reportedly express an interest in the property, and it suggested that it would hire ex-Vigil staffers, according to a GameSpot story. Platinum’s interest in Darksiders is not surprising, considering that it’s a hack-and-slash brawler in the style of the developer’s past offerings.

The selling of THQ’s assets may mean the return of franchises that have been long forgotten by the publisher. Independent developer teamPixel is making a bid on the Homeworld property if it can raise the money through its “SaveHomeworld” campaign on Indiegogo, a crowdfunding site similar to Kickstarter. If teamPixel can pick up the rights to Homeworld, it will take over development of the real-time strategy series.
