This is the sad, sad ghost of THQ’s offices

THQ was one of the more prolific developers and publishers to kick the bucket in the last generation.In a sad, sad situation, the company was forced to declare bankruptcy after a spiralling series of poor judgement calls and mismanagement, most notably the decision to invest fortunes in the UDraw Tablet. It’s a sad situation, made sadder by these sad pictures of THQ’s offices.

THQ’s most promising titles went on auction, being picked up by other publishers – and we’ve already seen the fruits borne from many those acquisitions, like Saint’s row IV, Metro Last Light and South Park Stick of Truth. A new company has moved in to the former publisher’s offices and Redditor Soulessgingr(no, not Rince) captured it all for posterity.

It sad stuff; it seems like the place was just evacuated, with awards, copies of games, statues and the like just lying about. Take a look. It’s heart-breaking stuff.

A reminder that we may never See Darksiders’ story come to a conclusion.

Ransacked walls of games released by the publisher

And some posters for games that were meant to published by THQ, before it went belly-up.
