So yeah, THQ…They are not being doing so great.
Earlier last month the publisher warned fans of the risk of bankruptcy. Stocks dropped dramatically throughout the passing months. They have defaulted over a $50 million loan to Wells Fargo and failure for Darksiders II to break even has left THQ in serious debt. The publish has announced delays on a handful of their most promising titles for next year including Metro: Last Light, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and Company of Heroes 2. In a desperate attempt to keep from sinking, THQ has partnered with the Humble Bundle to offer a deal to fans that is as a tempting take as diamonds rolled in chocolate and coated with sprinkles made of platinum.
For a donation of $1, you can get Steam keys for Company of Heroes and expansion packs (Oppressing Fronts and Tales of Valor), Darksiders, Metro: 2033, and Red Faction: Armagadon. If you pay over the average price (currently $5.68) for the bundle, you also get the Red Faction: Armagadon DLC pack (Path to War), Titan Quest, Saints Row: The Third, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Game of the Year Edition. You ALSO get the soundtrack for four of the seven games both in MP3 and FLAC format.
THQ is hoping to raise funds to keep the publisher from closing their doors for good through this partnership. As always, contributors are able to select the total amount they wish to pay and can choose between the developer, charity, or the Humble Tip.
