Relic’s studio head, Alex Peters, has left Relic for Activision. Details on “Develop”.
Also, Sega appears to be in lead position to purchase Relic from THQ.
Rumours currently suggest that Sega is in pole position to land Relic Entertainment, although this has not yet been confirmed.
Looks like this site has details of the purchase of Relic for 26 million by Sega.
Update: It’s official, THQ is dead. Relic is now a Sega studio (by the looks of it). No update on the individual IPs.
Update 2: Court filing. Looks like Sega might only have Company of Heroes!
Update 3: From the same court filing, Someguy spotted that Smoking Gun interactive is doing work related to Company of Heroes. “Mapping Company of Heroes to Steam”. Does this mean CoH will get a patch to move it off Quazal to Steam?
Update 4: Spotted by RadiantMonolith was this indigogo project launched today to try and recover the HW IP (so we now know at least one bidder for the IP). That project lead, Robert Santos, indicates that the HW IP was NOT auctioned off today and will be auctioned later in the month. Discuss here.
