I'm kind of disappointed Sega won Relic Entertainment but, at least it isn't Ubisoft. Sega only released a handul of decent PC games in the last decade (only Alpha Protocol is really notable); however, those that were notable needed patching and never got it. I can't imagine they'd change much in Company of Heroes 2 since it should be almost done. We'll see what happens for Company of Heroes 3.
What's left for THQ? Did they sell everything of value? The Relic sale by itself should have yielded enough money to to pay off THQ's debt.
I'm surprised Ubisoft didn't try to buy Volition. Volition's engine is a good one they could expand off of, not to mention Saints Row being the only serious competition to Grand Theft Auto. Oh well, more for Deep Silver.
SEGA isnt bad
PC wise they own the RTS market with mass military type games aka Total War Series, SEGA owns Creative assembly and the reason you dont see many games from them is they are investing in studios that DO make money on the PC platform example Rome II Total War had its budget increased by 40% by SEGA and its a PC only title
So seeing SEGA's record 9/10 they will throw money at Relic to make Company of Heroes.
