Game publisher THQ, whose properties included Saints Row, Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes, has auctioned off its assets, according to a Kotaku report.

While most of THQ's big properties have been divided up amongst other publishers, there's one notable exception - the Darksiders franchise.

The report said that Relic, which makes Company of Heroes, was sold to Sega. Koch Media, which owns Dead Island developer Deep Silver, has agreed to purchase the Metro franchise, and the makers of Saints Row, Volition Inc.

Crysis creators Crytek are set to buy Homefront, Take-Two has bought unreleased title Evolve, and Ubisoft has bought South Park: The Stick of Truth, as well as THQ's Montreal-based studio.

THQ filed for bankruptcy in December last year and announced plans to sell its assets.
