I don't really have much experience with the stock market but I do have experience with video games but I've never played Darksiders, was it any good? Will Darksiders 2 sell well enough to save the company? All I can think of is Apple going from $3 a share in 1997 to $685 now.
So, super risky investment, will Darksiders 2 save them? I'm sure it's coming out in June so they'll have some additional mid-year revenue. I looked at their future games for the year and it seems like a meager offering tbh.

No bids for Vigil and the Darksiders IP apparently.
Looks like everything else is going to be sold off at a seperate auction in a couple weeks. Nothing will be left. This will be your chance to pick up obscure an obscure IP no one wants for $1.
What happens to THQ's back catalog – especially for franchises that THQ once owned, but weren't sold off? What happens to properties like Darksiders and Red Faction?
There will be a separate process to sell off the back catalog and IP. That process will take place in the coming weeks.
Also of interest (this basically says there will be no company left to exit bankruptcy):
"And of course, unfortunately THQ’s non-development personnel are out of work as of the end of this week; this was a casualty of the court’s decision to allow piecemeal sale of assets."
