SEGA getting the Warhammer license could be fucking awesome, especially if they give it to The Creative Assembly!
I've kinda convinced myself that Crytek bought Homefront to avoid any weird licensing issues with another buyer, given that they'd started making the sequel in CryEngine. You've gotta think the brand is more a curse than a blessing at this point.

That kind of seems like a logical reason to be honest, especially since they bought it pretty cheaply.

Homefront has potential as a concept, $500,000 is a good price for it.

Re: THQ Sale Closed; What Goes Where?

Following THQ’s sale of the majority of its assets yesterday, the one question that remained is what will happen to the franchises not included in this week’s auction. In a new interview with Game Informer, THQ president Jason Rubin has now confirmed that those titles will be sold off as well.

“There will be a separate process to sell off the back catalog and IP,” Rubin said. “That process will take place in the coming weeks.”

Exactly when that process will take place hasn’t been revealed, nor have any of the specific titles that might be included. THQ franchises not in this week's auction include Red Faction, de Blob and Destroy All Humans!. The sale could potentially also include Darksiders, which remains unsold after yesterday’s proceedings.
Fuck yea THQ.
