There’s a certain irony that THQ — a company whose name is an abbreviation of Toy Head Quarters — met its fate less than a week before Christmas.
Make no mistake, THQ as we’ve known it is no more. The name might live on — and many of the games that were in the pipeline will likely make it to market. But even if that entity eventually proves to be a major force in the video game publishing industry at some point in the future, it won’t be THQ that succeeds. It will be its offspring.
