THQ Now Considering Linux Ports

Marcus Estrada

Earlier this month, Humble Bundle hosted a THQ bundle. Many people were bothered by this lack of an actual "indie" bundle, but many more purchased it. Despite negative press, the bundle managed to help increase the stock of THQ during it. By the end, it sold nearly 900 thousand bundles and generated $5 million.


One issue that was brought up time and time again about the THQ bundle was that it had no support for alternate OSes such as Linux. Because of this, THQ President Jason Rubin has been thinking about the possibility. Here is a comment he made in regards to supporting Linux:


"There are vibrant communities of gamers using other operating systems besides the dominant ones, and a company like THQ should not overlook them."


Does this mean we should expect to see their entire catalog on Linux soon? Not necessarily, but apparently it took the massive audience of the Humble Bundle (and financial trouble) to get THQ even thinking about porting their games to other OSes. Even if they did, it probably would not change the opinions of some soured by the THQ bundle.
