Ubisoft expresses interest in buying THQ assets

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, has expressed an interest in buying THQ's assets.

"For sure, it's something we can consider,"

Guillemot says Ubisoft is open to considering some of the THQ assets, but refused to comment on which items Ubisoft would be specifically interested in.

"They have good things," said Guillemot. "We are always interested in good brands. For sure, it's something we can consider, but I can't tell you more."

Ubisoft is currently leading the way on the Wii U with 8 titles launching over the course of the launch window.

We going to end with one huge games company - uh, wait a minute, aren't EA in that position already? Like the Death Star to Alderaan.

The two THQ brands I hope to see bought would be Darksiders and Saints Row

Not sure what they'll buy. I'm hoping the Saints Row, Darksiders and South Park titles. Depends on what THQ is wanting to keep for themselves really.

They would do well with the wrestling games an the UFC games but they will be hard to get as they make loads of money.

Great, so then can shoe-horn Assassin's Creed mechanics into Darksiders and Saints Row (ala Splinter Cell: Blacklist) as well, lol

WWE licence I think would be quite valuable. Darksiders 2 didnt sell as well as THQ hoped so dont know if Ubisoft would be interested. But saints row has sold well so would be a good licence to have.

Hmmmm If them could do something amazing to the WWE games I think this could be a brilliant buy for Ubisoft and for us consumers! If they get Saints Row as well then they could really revamp the series after its awful 3rd game and taking out ALL the online modes which made it a GREAT game (1st game) PLEASE DO IT UBI!!!

Might be good if they picked up the WWE franchise, it's been stagnating at THQ for so long now the games are hardly worth playing, maybe Ubisoft could do something new and interesting with it.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
