THQ has finally bitten the bullet and fallen into filing for bankruptcy in a move that shocks no one in the gaming industry and probably saddens even fewer than it shocks. They have been in some trouble for quite a while now, and them being moved to file for Chapter 11 seemed like a logical way for THQ’s saga to continue on. As a part of this filing, they have unveiled some unannounced titles that the world has previously been in the dark about.
Relic Entertainment was working on a title called “Atlas” which was set to launch in 2014 as well as Company of Heroes 2. Turtle Rock Studios has been developing a co-op multiplayer game running on the CryEngine 3, called “Evolve.” THQ Montreal was working on a game called 1666. Vigil Games, the folks behind Darksiders are working on a game called “Crawler.”
Of course, Jason Rubin has stated that their games are still on track for their release dates, but with them filing for bankruptcy it will be interesting to see what happens to their IPs and current projects.
