THQ is up for sale. What do you think will come of this? Will RF be given another chance by whoever buys the IP?

If so, will they pull another Guerrilla/Armageddon or will they do it justice?

Was talking with a friend the other day while we was split screening on serious sam 3
We was talking about the recent flow of games getting a "HD" version and we both mentioned red-faction. However i said its pretty good as it is, it only needs more support for modding, mapping and vehicle/bots in multi-player. So my personally suggestion would be to update the code. Although I'd pay for a HD version not matter what was changed in it, because its great.

I hope somebody does buy it and does something with red-faction 1. Everyone loved Red-faction, whether is was on PS2 or PC. So even if this was to happen I'm sure people on ps3/xbox360 would buy it also. For me it would be a dream come true, to see RF brought back to life.

Well all the IP's are up for grabs along with Volition.

Both Saints Row & Red Faction are listed as a "Franchise" that is available.

I read about the situation on another website and apparently Ubisoft are interested in some of THQ's properties. I really hope so as Ubisoft seem to be going from strength to strength.

Also Red Faction, Saint's Row, and Volition are all being sold separately. There's nothing to say Red Faction will go where Volition goes. We could end up with Red Faction: Redux made by Valve or Epic. (which I would love, because GeoMod would end up in either the SourceSDK or the UDK)

That is true. I could be totally wrong when i say this, but Geo-mode code is copyrighted. So anyone who does buy it, is able to use it in their own engines?

Geo-Mod's methods and code are under copyright yes, and the name Geo-Mod is a trademark as well.

Club together and put forward a bid for RF :lol:

Be interesting to see what happens as it plays out. I will be keeping an eye on the situation and who buys what. I bet there will be some surprise buyers!

So Koch Media (developers of Dead Island and Stalker: Clear Sky) bought Volition for $22 million. Still no word on what's to come of Red Faction, Geo-Mod, Saint's Row or Freespace.

Quoting goober
(developers of Dead Island and Stalker: Clear Sky)

publisher, not developer

Koch Media is here in germany. RED FROG and me should visit them and arrange a Red Faction 1 HD for us!

but seriously a good chance: writing emails to Koch Media regarding red faction to show interest.

btw. R.I.P. THQ

From what I read of the Red Faction link from dead999 the majority seem to be liking RF 1 the best. I guess there's always a chance of a re-released with better graphics and updated geo-mod.

Would be nice to see someone acquire it and make a sequal that is in the spirit of the original.

My ranking for the games would be:

RF 1
RF:G
RF 2
RF:A

(Haven't played Armageddon, but havent heard many good things about it)
