Big Huge Games, whose staffers have worked on some pretty big games such as Civilization II and Oblivion, will now fall under the THQ moniker.
The studio is currently working on an RPG title for 360, PS3 and PC but has "additional console projects" on the drawing board.
"The acquisition of Big Huge Games is a big win for THQ as we continue to expand both our internal development capabilities and our portfolio of owned intellectual properties," said Jack Sorensen, executive VP of worldwide studios, THQ. Get it - Expand?
"The talent at Big Huge Games has an outstanding history of developing top-selling quality games and we look forward to their creation of many exciting new owned franchises for THQ."
High-fives all round then.
