WWE: Future of WWE Video Games in Jeopardy?

As of January 23, the video game developer and publisher THQ has officially closed its doors for good after filing for bankruptcy late last year. Nearly all of THQ’s subsidiaries have been auctioned off to such video game juggernauts as Sega and Ubisoft. However, there are still a lot of questions regarding the WWE series of games, which was THQ’s most valuable franchise, according to the Wrestling-Online Newsletter. As it stands, Take-Two Interactive (which owns 2K Games and Rockstar Games, the makers of the Grand Theft Auto games, as well as BioShock, Borderlands, and the Civilization series) is set to purchase the licensing rights to the WWE video game franchise. Another issue that is at hand is that the WWE is still owed upwards of $45 million from THQ, an issue that has the WWE keeping a very close eye on the bankruptcy proceedings.

What do you think will become of the WWE video game franchise? Post your comments in the box below.
