According to a tweet by head of IGDA Mobile SIG Kevin Dent in a conversation he had with THQ head of tech Mark DeLoura.
That the video game company laid off some 170 employees along with Mark DeLoura himself. The company is expected to break the news today. This follows behind news that if the THQ could not get its stock up past 1 dollar a share that they would be taken off the NASDAQ register.
It seems the company is in some jeopardy, but with strong franchises like Saints row, and Darksiders they have every opportunity to turn it around and I wish them luck.
