Some more news now.

Ubisoft planning to buy THQ

Before THQ declared bankruptcy Ubisoft had already shown interest in buying the intellectual property of THQ, so it is not surprising that the French company now has plans to acquire the assets of THQ.

According to the sources of MCV, Ubisoft is in discussion with the Clearlake Capital Group, the firm that is financing the THQ while the bankruptcy process unfolds, to reach an agreement.

But it is given to understand that Ubisoft has no intention of making an offer until THQ is forced to sell their property. In this situation, Ubisoft can buy the series from THQ and licenses for a bargain.

The desire for Ubisoft is to become the largest publisher in the videogame market, and that series has sold millions as Assassin's Creed, Just Dance, Splinter Cell and Far Cry. With the addition of games from THQ, your wish may come true.
