Sega sues THQ for $941k over Company of Heroes 2 Steam pre-orders
Company of Heroes 2 publisher Sega is suing the now-bankrupt former publisher THQ for $941,000 over pre-order sales on Valve’s digital distribution platform Steam.
Sega filed a claim with the Delaware state court for the amount Valve paid THQ for Company of Heroes 2 pre-orders on Steam.
Valve took its 30 percent cut of the $1,345,301.29 of revenue from the 20,755 pre-orders between Sept. 2012 and Jan. 2013, leaving $941,000 left.
Sega said $508,877.85 of the amount it claims it’s owed by THQ is priority because Valve paid the money after it filed bankruptcy in Dec. 2012.
Sega bought the Company of Heroes rights and its developer Relic Entertainment for $26.6 million when THQ’s assets went up for sale.
The company is not the only one looking for money from THQ, several creditors claim they’re owed a combined amount of over $200 million.
Company of Heroes 2 launched on June 25.
