Earlier this week, the gaming world was talking about THQ constantly, but today’s news out of the bankrupt publisher is less frenzied. Maybe that’s because it’s the last day of work for most employees there.
According to an internal memo provided to IGN, this is the last day THQ’s building will be accessible to most employees, and they are being advised to pack up all of their belongings. Whether or not these employees will be compensated for accrued time off (or given any severance pay) is uncertain.
Also, all THQ stock is worthless as of today. All in all, grim news. Our best wishes go out to those affected.
For more about the THQ shutdown, check out our interview with former president Jason Rubin, the podcast discussing the topic, and this rundown of where THQ’s studios and properties landed.
