WWE Games Publisher Files for Bankruptcy; Production Expected to Continue

Mike Killam

THQ announced this morning that, as part of their purchasing agreement with Clearlake Capital Group, they have officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company has been a part of pro wrestling video games dating all the way back to "WCW Nitro" on the Nintendo 64 and original Playstation console, with WWE '13 being its most recent release. 

According to IGN, "all studios will remain open with all development teams continuing to work" during the sale period. THQ's name is still attached to WWE '14, which was scheduled to begin early production in 2013. At this point it is too early to tell the fate of WWE Games, or whether they are obligated in any way to remain affixed to the THQ brand.
