Koch Media/Deep Silver acquires Saints Row, Metro IP AND Volition Studio
After yesterday’s news, THQ is no more. Most of the publisher’s IP and studios were sold yesterday to several bidders and Koch Media, parent company of Deep Silver, has secure the rights to two of the most popular and best selling franchises from THQ’s catalog: Saints Row and Metro! If you thought Saints Row The Third was crazy and couldn’t possibly be more over the top… I’m sure Deep Silver will accept your challenge and prove you wrong!
But wait, there is more! Koch Media also acquired Chicago-based development studio Volition who is currently working on the next Saints Row, as well a still unannounced IP. Volition has been the developer for all Saints Row games, and it has also worked on Red Faction series.
What do yo think about this new beginning for both franchises?
