They also have sales predictions in the bankruptcy filing.



Note: The document confirms Atlas is from Relic, and is presumably their f2p MOBA game.

there is another game. Crawler (working title) by Vigil in the document.

edit:

Financial projections


Projected balance sheet

So, Atlas is probably a PC-game only, or a niche game. A new Homeworld sounds likely.

Edit: or not, according to Nirolak.

Any figures for theses budgets?

Also is Homefront 2 at 4m really that ridiculous? Didn't the first ship about that much?

Fiscal year ending Q1 2014 means it could be finished and out for the holidays, especially since less of its budget is there than Homefront 2, implying it's in development for less months in that fiscal year.

So then can we assume that it'll be one of those hybrid releases? On both current and next gen hardware?

Edit:

Assuming there is at least one console release during the holidays.

About 1666 we have this rumor (being about the Great Fire of London)
In a TV interview (in French) earlier this year, Désilets said he was leaving for London in a few hours to do some research for his next game.

People will be less willing to get burned a second time.

It's over with Crytek now, and for all the negatives Homefront did bring a lot of fresh things on the MP side that people identified with. 4 may be high, but I bet it does decently.

Here is my prediction, 1666 is a third person stealth action game set in an open world map of 17th century London.

Sound familiar? :)

So Darksiders 2 was expected to sell 2.4 M copies; made $78.2M in revenue and up to now it has lost THQ $500K?

It's just so amazing how a game can sell 2 million today and not at least break even. I'm sad about the impending death of THQ not just for the games, but for the symbolic crushing defeat of the middle game.

Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly, but I thought thq was working on a warhammer mmo that they then decided to transform into a single player game?

I guess maybe with their current issues they had to drop it, shame though as a warhammer rpg could be pretty awesome.

The problem is that the game had to get discounted an awful lot in order for it to set 2.4 million copies.

.

Dark Millenium, yeah. Definitely dead at this point, which is a shame considering it could have been the successor to the fantastic Space Marine.

4m each for two unknown IPs and 4m for Homefront 2. Seems highly unlikely.

About as credible as the valuations that they gave their assets earlier this year.

There were no plans for Space Marine 2 or Dawn of War 3? I could have sworn someone said DoW3 was in the works at least.

Still, sad to see them go.

I'd say 2m for CoH2 is very optimistic too, maybe in 2-3 years at low prices, maybe.
