Remaining THQ titles to be sold at auction

Late last year, publisher THQ crumbled into nothing, leaving a whole pile of games, developers and assets to be auctioned off. Many – including Homefront, South Park and Metro – were sold in late January, but there was still plenty left over. Now the rest has been bundled up for auction – if you’ve ever wanted to buy a gaming franchise, now’s your chance.

The following franchises and licensed properties have been sorted into six lots, some bracketed by franchise, others seemingly a pretty impressively random grab-bag of all sorts of stuff. If you buy the licensed properties, the cure costs are on your head.

Initial bids must be submitted by April 1st, with final bids due in by April 15th.
