Now that THQ’s assets have been auctioned off it is time for them to use the money they got from said auction to pay people back. And from the list of creditors, it looks like THQ has a lot of people to pay back, including both Double Fine and Codemasters who are both claiming that THQ owes them substantial amounts of money.
Double Fine is claiming that THQ owes them approximately $595,000 for breach of contract. Double Fine argues that THQ allowed both Stacking and Costume Quest to be given away for free as PlayStation Plus promotion without adequate notice.
Codemasters claims that THQ owes them over $1,000,000 for unpaid royalties as well as lost stock of games. Apparently there is a warehouse somewhere with copies of Body Count, Dirt 3 and F1 2011 just sitting around collecting dust according to Codemasters.
Other people claiming lost money from THQ are previous executives including both Jason Kay and Jason Rubin. Both Kay and Rubin are asking for $2.1 million for “Employment Obligations” such as: lost vacation pay, breaches of duties, and priority wages.
