Gearbox Software Gets A New Homeworld and the THQ Auction Results Are In!

We now know who owns the rest of THQ's back catalog of games, and there was a pretty huge amount of intellectual properties up for sale in the auction. Joystiq reported earlier that Nordic Games came away with the most bang for their buck by shelling out a cool $4.9 Million for Darksiders, Red Faction, and the MX vs. ATV Series. One of the biggest surprises was Gearbox Software (creators of Borderlands and Brothers In Arms) have picked up Homeworld for $1.35 Million, which means they could re-release the previous entries digitally or make an entirely new entry to the series of real-time strategy games. The only other big pull was 505 Games picking up the Drawn To Life series for $300,000. However, a lot of IPs did exchange hangs at the auction, so check out the full article for the entire list.
