Bankrupt THQ owes tens of millions in debt
A full list of THQ's creditors has been published, with hundreds of individuals and companies seeking tens of millions of dollars in debts.
The publisher was forced to sell off
its studios and assets as part of bankruptcy plans earlier this year. Now that the company has sold everything off, it can begin paying back what it owes.
There are numerous notable inclusions in the list of creditors. Double Fine Productions, for example, is claiming $595,000 for alleged breach of contract
[PDF], stating that THQ gave its games Stacking
and Costume Quest
away for free as part of a PlayStation Plus promotion, but did not give Double Fine adequate notice of the action.
Double Fine goes on to claim that it did not receive any of the profits from the PlayStation Plus payments.
Codemasters is claiming $1,002,714.25 from THQ
[PDF], stating that it has unpaid royalties, as well as valuable stock of games like Body Count, Dirt 3
and F1 2011
sitting in a warehouse.
Meanwhile, former THQ executives Jason Kay
and Jason Rubin
[PDF] are claiming $2.1 million each as part of "Employment Obligations."
Both say they are owed payments from breaches of duties, priority wages, and salary commissions including vacation pay, severance pay and sick leave.
