THQ Inc. (short for "Toy Head-Quarters") was a video game publisher and developer based in California. Originally a publisher of licensed games during the NES and SNES eras (a lot of them not very good), it had since expanded its product to include original franchises such as Saints Row, Company of Heroes, and Destroy All Humans!.

It closed down several studios, laid off thousands of workers, and moved on from licensed properties based on kids' shows to focus on "high quality-owned IPs". This all came to a head on December 19, 2012, as THQ filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Its fate got sealed when it auctioned off most of its properties on January 23, 2013. It ultimately sold the following properties:
