SA gamers have become part of the casualties, as THQ has announced that all game distribution has been put on hold in South Africa.

“In light of the recent unfortunate events that have taken place within THQ, Ster Kinekor Entertainment will not at this time be distributing titles previously announced by THQ,” said Ster Kinekor Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Mario Dos Santos.

The news comes following the game publisher’s announcement of bankruptcy.

THQ’s IPs, which include some big-name hitters, such as the Darksiders, Saints Row and Metro licenses, were auctioned off to the highest bidders. Ubisoft and Crytek were among the companies who acquired the publishing rights.
