For all the GD fans who are trying to keep up with the THQ bankruptcy saga: It might not be as bad as we thought.
True, THQ filed for bankruptcy last month. But for those of us who are not economics students, THQ president Jason Rubin has announced that this isn't necessarily bad news...
"The most important thing to understand is that Chapter 11 [proceeding of the Bankruptcy code] does not mean the end of the THQ story or the end of the titles you love", Rubin said last month. "Quite the opposite is true, actually."
Apparently, many strong companies have done the same in the past (and even in the present). Rubin's community message is actually full of optimism, and for those of us who wish the best to the ailing publisher, it's encouraging news.
"Chapter 11 is a safety net for U.S. companies", Rubin adds. True, THQ is probably going to change hands in the near future, but it's entirely possible that this won't mean any titles will be dropped from their upcoming menu of games. In fact, Relic are even hiring!
Or am I just the most naive journalist in the land? Do you read THQ's announcement and assume the worst? Either way, let's hear it in the comments nexus below.
