THQ selling more IPs in new auction

THQ is to sell a number of its remaining intellectual properties in a new auction.

While many of the bankrupt publisher's biggest assets were acquired last month following an initial auction, the company now hopes to shift six designated lots of IP titles through a new court-supervised sale process.

These include the Darksiders, Red Faction, MX and Homeworld franchises. It will also auction off other owned software such as de Blob, Juiced and Destroy All Humans!, and other licensed software including Marvel Super Hero, Supreme Commander and Worms.

Initial bids must be submitted by April 1 and final bids by April 15. The sale process is expected to be completed by mid-May. THQ claims to have received over 100 expressions of interest in purchasing various titles.
