RUMOR: Ubisoft Wants a Chunk of THQ

According to rumor, Ubisoft is looking into buying the now-bankrupt THQ.

So, word around town is that Ubisoft is interested in staking their claim of the now-bankrupt THQ. The Saint’s Row publishers filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday night.

Studios and offices remain open, but ownership has been surrendered to an investment firm as a part of the move.

Folks are saying that THQ is going to be a bargain buy for the French firm. If the deal is finalized, Ubisoft would not only control their existing blockbusters franchises Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and others. They would also gain rights to THQ’s big WWE titles, along with the rest of their stable of games.

Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, has previously expressed interest in getting his hands on some of THQ’s share of the market. Last month he remarked:

They have good things. We are always interested in good brands. It’s something we can consider…

 Looks like he’s upgraded from considering to taking action.

…but I’m not one to gossip, so you know you didn’t hear it from me.
