THQ auction rumours: Ubisoft nabs South Park, Sega snaps up

Postby sulli456 » 23 Jan 2013, 11:15

Sega could do well with company of heroes, what with their total war series being great games. Might see something good come of that one, i wouldn't mind if they got the creative assembly involved.

Ubisoft and south park don't go in my opinion, the stick of truth doesn't strike me as the kind of game ubisoft would be involved with. Not sure why though can't put my finger on it.

I'm kind of hoping the South Park situation gets a bit nasty, so I can start preying for a South Park episode around the subject.

SEGA wanting to buy relic makes perfect sence. they have just gotten the rights to make Warhammer Fantasy games and getting Relic would give them a lot of clout to go after the 40k license as well.

Ooh that would be fun! I could wait an extra month or two for the game for an episode berating THQ and Ubisoft :mrgreen:

Here's hoping EA failed to gain any.

Why? I would rather EA get Volition than Koch media. Though I suppose it could be worse, Ubisoft could end up with a lot more than South Park.

All you media can suck it. You talk about all these rumors when you don't know what you are saying. People at THQ are waiting to find out what their future holds. Have some f*****g compassion for the people trying to save this place.

EA would ruin Saints Row IMO. I could see them implementing the microtransaction on a strong level.
