Since THQ has fallen, we are now receiving information about the various intellectual properties that are being auctioned off from the company. On Jan. 23, it was revealed that a game called “Evolve” was surprisingly auctioned off for a total of $11 million to the publisher of “GTA 5,” which is Take-Two.
Although very little is known about this title, it is noteworthy to reveal that this game is being developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the original developer for “Left 4 Dead.” The second place bidder for this intellectual property was Turtle Rock themselves, who offered a total of $250,000. Obviously, this was outdone by the incredible offer from Take-Two.
THQ suspected that this title would saled a total of 4 million copies. In return, the company stated that this intellectual property would generate a total of $40 million in profits. Taking these numbers, it is expected that this title will be placed among the big hitters once it is initially released.
