    Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has admitted interest in some of THQ’s IPs, but he declined to coment which ones.

    In an interview with GI International, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot lamented the situation publisher THQ was facing and also commented on the possibility of acquiring some of its IPs, however, he didn't specify which ones.

    So, would you be OK with that?

    As you may know, THQ is facing lots of troubles, as recently delayed some of its games, including South Park: The Stick of Truth, Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2, reported a net loss of $21 million in its latest financial report, and also defaults on $50 million line of revolving credit with Wells Fargo.

      Having played all three of these games (well 2 of the Saints Row and 1 of the Company of Heroes.) I can honestly say that Metro seems like the best of the group. At least in my opinion.

      Some of THQ's older stuff might be even better.

      Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War on the PC was pretty awesome. (honestly would like a Wii-U version of this game.)

      Destroy All Humans would be nice too.

      Some other nice IP's that probably where under utilized.... and now THQ is in the mess they are in now.

      I forgot Warhammer was THQ (Relic).. Thats an IP UBI badly wants.

      Anyways... UBI Snagged Heroes of Might ant Magic series from 3DO, and Warhammer is as big.
