THQ's bankruptcy shouldn't come as a shock to anyone given the publisher's ongoing financial situation, but now that THQ has filed for Chapter 11, president Jason Rubin wants gamers to understand that it's actually a good thing for the company's future and for the continuation of great brands like Saint's Row.
"The most important thing to understand is that Chapter 11 does not mean the end of the THQ story or the end of the titles you love," Rubin wrote in a blog post to fans. "Quite the opposite is true, actually."
"So THQ made headlines today - and I am sure there will be tons of click-grabbing headlines over the next month or so," he continued. "But what matters to us is not what is happening to THQ right now, but what the company and its teams will make of ourselves after we complete the sale. In short, the teams will be unburdened by the past and able to focus on what they should be focusing on -- Making great games."
