THQ announced recently that they were going to be selling off various THQ properties due to the liquidation of assets (financial issues). We may be be hearing more this week about various franchises that are being picked up by various studios. The first press release that I have is that Koch Media and Deep Silver have acquired all intellectual property rights for Saints Row and Metro.
“Koch Media welcomes the addition of these magnificent franchises to the Koch Media family of entertainment properties,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media GmbH. “With more than 200 games on notable platforms globally, and its proven success creating renowned franchises like Dead Island, Deep Silver is perfectly positioned to lead these brands into the next generation of interactive entertainment for fans around the world.”
