New THQ Montreal game in auction filing: Underdog


The results from THQ's auction reveal not only how much its studios and IPs were worth to other companies, but also an unannounced game: THQ Montreal's Underdog.

Ubisoft placed the only bid for THQ Montreal, snagging the studio, Underdog and 1666 for $2.5 million. The filing doesn't list any details about either game, though 1666 has shown up in previous THQ bankruptcy documents.

The auction results reaffirm the existence of Evolve (aka Metamorphosis), a co-op multiplayer action game from Turtle Rock Studios, and reveal that it runs on Crytek's CryEngine 3.
