THQ Buys Rise of Nations Studio

THQ has announced that they have decided to reveal that they have completed the acquisition of purchasing Big Huge Games. However, we are sure the buy-out was not quite as long winded as that description – although maybe it was! The studio will now work in-house for THQ. The company is currently working on a new RPG and is believed to be planning a brand new IP that is all hush-hush and is being worked on behind closed doors.

I would say that the RPG was enough,” said Jack Sorensen. “But what definitely sealed the deal for us on both sides is the next one. It’s more innovative, more unique, and we just felt like it requires both long-term thinking from both sides. It showed us that this is a studio that can generate some new concepts. Anything else coming out of Big Huge is icing on the cake.
