Homefront Reviews Kill THQ Stock

Following less than stellar reviews of Homefront on Metacritic, THQ stock dropped in value by nearly 26 percent yesterday. Obviously, that’s not good news for any publisher, but this comes in the wake of poor sales of De Blob 2, rumors that Homefront developer, Kaos Studios could be relocated, and waning sales of the uDraw game tablet. Hopefully they can pull a win out of the situation with Saint’s Row: The Third.

  1. They keep closing down these studios… Its beginning to scare me a little. While I don’t like where things are going, I get the feeling that natural selection is beginning to take form in the gaming industry. Best to THQ.

  2. @Mugenite I could not agree with you more. Survival of the fittest seems to be the norm for all business these days and I have the same emotions as well. This scary. If the game does not sell like COD (for example) then they will most likely fail. Even Industry’s that have been in the industry for 10 years are now shutting down. This is terrible news for those games that are decent and worth the 60 bucks but just don’t get enough hype and sales. It is just sad.
