With THQ's bankruptcy case now resolved, where else can we turn for the will-they-won't-they of franchise auctions? We can certainly get a quick fix of financial peril from Atari, who have sold off properties including Master of Orion and Total Annihilation - both of which have ended up with the current owner of all the money, Wargaming.net. It should be happy news for TA fans, as the game's original designer, Chris Taylor, and his studio Gas Powered Games are now also being cradled under the Wargaming umbrella.
