Report: Ubisoft Looking To Buy THQ

THQ‘s bankruptcy woes may end soon, thanks to a competitor.THQ, maker of the Saints Row, WWE, Darksiders, and Red Faction franchises, filed for bankruptcy Wednesday, handing over all of its assets to an investment firm who will look to sell the company’s future to an interested buyer, and it looks like they’ve found one: Ubisoft.

It seems the company behind Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance, ZombiU and Far Cry would like to add to their already impressive stable of content, and adding THQ‘s assets would do nicely, especially considering the few previously unannounced games that THQ will be finishing up in the near future. Apparently Ubisoft is waiting to see how low of a price they can get, however, before making an offer… that kind of strategy worked for Warner Bros with their takeover of Midway; they simply waited until Midway had to start selling off licenses, getting the price down to a comparatively small $33 million.

Ubisoft may not wait that long, though; they’ve made it pretty clear recently that they’re interested in picking up some of THQ‘s properties. CEO Yves Guillemot says there are at least a few things THQ offers that impress him, adding that he’s always interested in picking up good brands.
