Ubisoft might be considering acquiring THQ assets, CEO Yves Guillemot said in an interview with GameIndustry International. “They have good things,” he says. “We are always interested in good brands. For sure, it’s something we can consider, but I can’t tell you more.” He also described the THQ situation as something regular during transitions. “What happened to [THQ] is something that happens regularly when we have transition,” he said. “Some can make it, some decide to go in different direction. It happened with Atari and Midway and also Acclaim last generation. … It’s something that happens in this industry and that’s the way the industry consolidates.”
THQ’s stock is now down to $1.19, compared to $3.02 on November 5. EA already did buy some of their assets earlier this year. They got the UFC rights in exchange for “undisclosed cash payment.” Now we might be seeing a similar situation. Please, Ubisoft, save Saint’s Row! You can read the full interview here.
