Well I have high hopes they can atleast make a fun game, something Yukes! games were not. Plus EA will sink more resources into the game to atleast make it look more polished and professional. I can't wait to see what they do with PS4. The wrestlers will look incredible. The game might start out a little rough, but it will definitely get better every year.

They'll reuse that MMA game they made, which was total garbage. The glory days of Fight Night 3 feel so far away.

The sales hearing would have been then, but the auction is still going, so it got delayed.

Do we know if this is an unlimited time auction? Or does it have to be finished by the time of the next hearing?

Long auction means that there is a strong demand for the assets? I guess that's good? I just hope that something happens with most of the IPs. It sucks to see things mothballed and forgotten because no one wants to do anything with them.

Really hope Sega gets Relic. They have established themselves as a good PC publisher. Sports Interactive and Creative Assembly have been doing very well under Sega. Would like to see Relic there as well.

Crazy to think of the turn around in overall theme that Sega has made but I totally agree.

Jeff Gerstmann is desperately fighting for the rights to Saints Row and is currently using his Game Of The Year debating experience to acquire the IP as well as nominating Koch Media as Disappointment Of The Year.

Honestly, if they get Relic, their PC output will likely be more notable than their console and handheld output combined at this point, which is pretty much as far away from what they used to be as you can get.

You know EA has made wrestling games in the past right and not that long ago? Go look up WCW Mayhem or the fabulous Backstage Assault before you get excited.

They DID own 54% of NJPW, until Jan 2012, when they sold off their shares to some Japanese card game company called Bushiroad

Edit: Are THQ San Diego up for auction today? They did a good job with WWE All-Stars.

San Diego is long gone, most people have already landed at other companies. EA is not getting the WWE license unless something crazy happens.

I don't think there was ever a rumor that EA was buying Relic so much as they were one of the only strategic fits and showed interest in evaluating the studio.

Watch out for VancouverTim - he mentioned Relic was all fired yesterday so take it with a grain of salt.
