Gearbox, Nordic Games and 505 Games buy remaining THQ IP


Gearbox Software, Nordic Games, and 505 Games have become the latest companies to successfully bid on the sale of THQ’s intellectual properties.

Nordic Games placed a winning $4.9 million bid on Darksiders, Red Faction, and MX vs ATV, as well as Other Owned Software (which includes Destroy All Humans! and Summoner), and Other Licensed Software (such as Marvel Super Hero Squad and Supreme Commander).

Whilst Gearbox Software bid a sizeable $1.35 million to purchase the Homeworld license, whereas 505 Games bid £300,000 for Drawn to Life and Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter.

Subject to Bankruptcy Court approval, this will generate $6.55 million for the six available lots if their sale is approved.
