THQ properties sold, Ubisoft, Sega and Koch Media among buyers

Well we knew it was coming right?  Long time publisher THQ has finally sold its assets and properties off in an attempt to finalize its bankruptcy filing.  Some highlights of the sale include the following:

•SEGA has agreed to purchase Relic, developer of Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

•Koch Media (owner of Dead Island publisher Deep Silver) has agreed to purchase Saints Row developer Volition as well as the publishing rights to the Metro franchise.

•Crytek, who is currently developing Homefront 2, has purchased the rights to the Homefront franchise.

•Take-Two (parent company of 2K and Rockstar) has agreed to purchase Turtle Rock Studios’ project codenamed Evolve. (Update: While Take Two was initially rumored to have acquired Darksiders publisher Vigil, reports now indicate that isn’t the case)

•Ubisoft has purchased the rights to publish South Park: The Stick of Truth (pending any further objections from South Park Studios) as well as THQ Montreal.

So far the Darksiders developer has yet to be sold but word on the street is that we’ll hear about it soon.  The WWE franchise has also yet to be sold.  What say you?
