THQ Franchises Auctions' Results

Since THQ went into bankruptcy we've all been wondering what would happen to its different IPs; today, we have this information on our hands!

Plenty of different companies showed their interest in a variety of franchises, but just a few got some of these IPs. After the auction took place, the one company with the most interest of all, Nordic Games, which showed interest in pretty much every IP on the list, got away with the rights for Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs. ATV, and many other titles, for a total of $4.9 million.

Lars Wingefors, CEO of Nordic Games said:

"First and foremost we are very happy about this deal which also turns over a new leaf for the entire Nordic Games Group. In the long term, we either want to cooperate with the original creators or best possible developers in order to work on sequels or additional content for these titles. A very important point for us is not to dash into several self-financed multi-million dollar projects right away, but rather to continue our in-depth analysis of all titles and carefully selecting different financing models for developing new installments of acquired IPs."

Now, let's just take a look at the listing of every IP and its new owners:

Well, I wouldn't think of a Darksiders 3 being released this year, maybe, I'd believe that, if there is a new Darksiders, it will be for next-gen consoles + PC, meaning it would be anywhere between 2014-2015, but we never know

Actually, I was reading some comments from them and it seems that they don't have planned to develop a new game, which is kind of a let down, yet they seem to be open to work as a "middleman" and let someone else develop that under their name

I'm pretty sure, to milk their new acquisitions, they may rerelease them on online platforms or make some sort of download content

Hi. I have some strangeness with SQL server... When I try to restore Arcadia Telecaster or auth, nothing happens. I just choose the file thats all. When I try the old database, it works normally, but when I use 7.3 database nothing happens. I use SQL 2012. Мaybe the problem is that I'm using x32 (86), and not x64? If somebody knows this problem answer please. Thank you!
