Saints Row 4 and more revealed by THQ bankruptcy doc

We reported earlier that THQ has declared bankruptcy and is now seeking a new owner. But one of the unfortunate realities of such a miserable situation is having to declare all of your assets. And in a game company's case, that means revealing every game you've got in development. There are four titles we didn't know about:

  • Turtle Rock Studios: Working title 'Evolve'
  • THQ Montreal: Working title '1666'
  • Relic Entertainment: Working title 'Atlas'
  • Vigil Games: Working title 'Crawler'

And of course we would have guessed Saints Row 4 would be in there, but here's the confirmation. This is THQ's list of active games in full, along with sales projections, taken from the bankruptcy filing itself.

THQ is expecting to be able to continue developing and publishing as normal as it seeks a new owner, so we should still see these games at some point in the not-too-distant future.

    Vigil's making another game? Brb, on my way to raise enough money to buy THQ back into business.

    I want Homefront 2. The ip has a lot of potential.

    Stay strong THQ, STAY STRONG!

    They have some good games coming out, but I am sure they can't compete or get as much hype as other games.

    Saints Row the Third was a disappointment imo. SR2 was the best and they decided to take way to much out of it and added not muc in return. The map was smaller and everywhere basically looked the same. The customization was dumbed down way to much. You'd think after taking out MP they would be able to focus on adding more to the single and coop aspects but I just didn't see it. Once the game is over there is no reason to hangout in the city.

    I'm inclined to agree for the most part, although I only really recognized most of that in hindsight. While I was playing the game, it was a ton of fun, but I was a bit disappointed with the customization options even from the start. Pretty much what it felt like is that they traded out depth for style and polish.

    After playing the first one, not a lot of people are gonna want to play Homefront 2. They ruined that game quite well.

    Has anyone else noticed that the new 40k game they were suppossed to be making is missing from that list. Hope it hasn't been canned.
  • Jbo87 - December 20, 2012 4:45 a.m.

    It's been in limbo for so long now that it's starting to look bleak for the new 40k game. However 'Atlas' is a working title and as seen as it's Relic working on it then it would be safe to assume it's a 40k property.

    They obviously have high hopes for 1666! They expect it to make them the most profit after Saints Row 4! I wonder what it is! Something to do with the Fire of London it would seem, but what?! With those kind of sales projections I'm hoping for something with an Uncharted/Tomb Raider/Assassin's Creed kinda cinematic feel with beautiful procedural fire and Red Faction's realtime destruction in medieval London. Yum

    Im pretty sure we already knew Saints Row 4 was on the way when they had the cheek to cancel the last part of the DLC they were doing (that was apparantly promised in the season pass) saying it would be used as material for its sequel...
  • doominatorx6 - December 20, 2012 9:40 p.m.

    The Season Pass in general was a complete joke (you only got three of the god-knows-how-many DLC's and you saved maybe a buck on it all), but they did 'technically' deliver. Only three DLC packs for the Pass were planned, and they were all released. Unless I'm missing something. Also, Homefront 2. SERIOUSLY. I know I bitch about this all the time, but still I don't see the logic. Homefront was a game that was average AT BEST and was the perfect scapegoat for the term 'don't buy into the hype.' Multiplayer was okay but the SP was a complete joke.

    The DLC in question was not part of the Season Pass, they delivered everything that they promised for it. All of the DLC that was going to be in the Season Pass was announced by title when they sold it, and all three of those DLC expansions came out.
