The bad news about THQ keeps getting worse. According to a report from Impress Watch, THQ Japan will close its doors on February 29th. It is reported that the primary cause of this closure is due to the financial problems of parent THQ in the US. The firm will enter in negotiations with other manufacturers and publishing arms to release games in the region.
It is not clear how this may affect future THQ games in Japan, but hopefully this is a move that can help THQ’s long term viability.
