THQ’s portfolio of award-winning games, its network of internal development studios creating topquality new franchises, and pioneering business models in digital distribution position the company at the forefront of gaming innovation.

The company’s unrivaled support of the artists and game creators distinguishes THQ among its competitors. By putting artists first—supporting creative leads with top-tier facilities, teams and inspiring creative atmospheres—the company encourages the development of compelling new original IPs. Core games such as Company of Heroes®, Darksiders®, Homefront®, and Saints Row® are all testaments to THQ’s model of developing artistically-driven, innovative games.

Publishing games across multiple game platforms and devices has been, and will continue to be, a cornerstone of our product strategy. Additionally, our strategy is focused on developing a steady flow of high quality titles targeted at the core gamer and integrating a digital component into our applicable franchises.

The strategic mix of internally created and externally licensed content in its product portfolio makes THQ highly adaptable and well balanced. With internally created franchises like Darksiders and Saints Row alongside content based on leading sports and entertainment companies including Games Workshop® (Warhammer® 40,000®), Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) and World Wrestling Entertainment® (WWE®), the company boasts industry-leading expertise in every important facet of the field.
