All those wonderful IP's soon to be saved? Depending on your stance on Ubisoft that is.

Quote:
Ubisoft is one of the front-runners in the bid to buy THQ's assets, MCV understands.

We have been told that the French firm is keen to take over the publisher's brands and studios once THQ works through its current financial problems.

Ya know, at this point... I wouldn't care if Ubisoft bought them or not.
It's better then EA or Activision, and it would help the jobs of those working on projects at THQ.

And really, those peoples jobs are more important than our personal views on Ubisoft's practices.

Yeah, I'd rather Ubisoft than some of the others. I was hoping Square-Enix would pick them up personally, but I can't see that happening.

Ubisoft ONLY if there is no other option....and there is ALWAYS another option....so I guess that's a big, fat NO to Ubisoft!

Can you guess which side of the fence I'm standing on?

So you guys would genuinely rather have the likes of EA or Activision pick them up? Out of the companies in a position to acquire them I rate Ubisoft pretty highly. Not the best, but far from the worst.

I don't care who buys it so long as the company continues making games, and everyone keeps their jobs this Christmas.

God speed to them.

They already have a private investor, the bankruptcy was to tank their share price to make them cheaper to acquire and renegotiate their debts.
