Tim Schafer's Double Fine to bid on THQ franchise?

By
Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions will reportedly bid on an unnamed THQ franchise.

The San Francisco-based independent studio has requested the bankruptcy filings in the THQ case, according to a tweet by Distressed Debt Investing, leading to speculation that it will bid on an IP.

Double Fine's request could be related to their partnership with THQ on Stacking and Costume Quest, however, both of which were released on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN.

An auction will be held to sell off THQ's assets, including studios and game intellectual properties, later this month.

Both Electronic Arts and Warner Bros Interactive are listed in court documents as interested bidders for THQ's portfolio, while Ubisoft has also expressed an interest in making a bid.

THQ has previously said that there will be no reduction in staff at any of its studios during the sale, and that there will be no change in any of its current in-development titles.

Company of Heroes 2, Metro: Last Light and South Park: The Stick of Truth are all still scheduled for release in early 2013 as previously planned.

Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 will both be available in March 2013, while South Park: The Stick of Truth is expected to launch for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC between April and June.
