As the saga surrounding THQ's decline winds down, with each of its assets and studios sold off to various publishers and developers, the company today revealed that it has let go of its last remaining key staff.

In a short and to-the-point SEC 8-K filing late last night, the company announced that it has terminated the employment of CEO Brian J. Farrell, president Jason Rubin (pictured), and CSO Jason Kay with immediately effect.

Farrell recently said that, while he was happy to see that the majority of THQ's studios and games had found new homes, he regretted that that not every employee would have a job elsewhere.

Self-reference, or precognition? (Both perhaps?)

Ok THQ are gone now, enough. Lets have some articles on winning publishers, not losers.

On the contrary, further examination of how an organization failed could lead to more insights on how to avoid a similar catastrophe.

@Andrew - your reply makes absolutely no sense and completely misses the point I was making. By your argument we should get rid of History as a subject matter entirely.

@Andrew: You analogy fails on the assumption that people studying wars are trying to prevent new ones from happening.
