Het gaat er de laatste tijd hard aan toe met overnames in de gamesindustrie.

THQ was waarschijnlijk zo onder de indruk van Volition's Red Faction dat ze hun buidel maar opendeden en 50 miljoen op tafel legden.We learned at ECTS today that THQ, famous for wrestling, fishing, and Game Boy games, has purchased developer Volition, best known for such games as the Descent and Freespace series, and the upcoming Summoner and Red Faction.

THQ purchased Volition in an all-stock transition, for about $20-$25 million.

We'll follow up with more details as soon as an "official" announcement is made.
