THQ is in a restructuring period.
After reports of THQ Europe offices being closed, it’s now THQ Asia Pacific’s turn to be shut down by the main establishment, according to a report published on MCV. The publisher’s financial condition isn’t worth discussing right now, so asking for a reason for this move is out of the question. We know why they’re doing this.
The head offices of THQ Asia Pacific was located in Melbourne, Australia. The distribution and other rights were transferred to All Interactive Entertainment.
Ian Curran, THQ EVP, Global Publishing, said: “The evolution of our distribution model in the Asia Pacific region will allow us to increase our reach with a lower cost model. AIE is a trusted business partner with whom we have worked with for many years as our distributor in New Zealand.”
Director of All Interactive Entertainment, Robert Kingston, added: “We are delighted to broaden our relationship with a top publisher such as THQ. We look forward to bringing THQ’s highly-anticipated new video game releases and existing game portfolio to our retail network in the territory.”
