THQ's Future Looks Grim, Shares Drop By Nearly 50 Percent
Posted on Tuesday, November 6 @ 10:51:33 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
THQ has been struggling as a publisher for quite some time. Now, with the recent delays of South Park: Stick of Truth, Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2, and losses totaling in at $21 million, the company's situation appears to only be getting worse.
According to a report from Reuters, THQ's stock has dropped a whopping 46% in a single day, which is clearly a very, very bad thing. Part of the drop in shares is being attributed the rather underwhelming sales of Vigil Games' Darksiders II. Currently, only 1.4 million units have been sold, and a total of 2 million in sales is required for THQ to break even on the game.
According to Wedbush Securities' Michael Pachter (via GamesIndustry), THQ will likely either face bankruptcy or sale.
Do you think THQ will be able to beat the odds and somehow dig themselves out of this terrible hole they currently find themselves in? Let us know what you think in the comments below.[Via]
