THQ memo asks employees to pack up today


Employees of THQ's corporate HQ and Vigil studio will conclude working for the bankrupt publisher today. In a memo obtained by IGN, employees received a "frequently asked questions" memo regarding the end of their employment.

The memo notes employees should remove all personal items by the end of the day, as access to the building will be shut off today. Employees will be paid through today, have health insurance until January 31, with severance and leftover vacation day pay yet to be determined. All stock is worthless.

An auction was held this week to sell off most of THQ's assets, with the publisher's intellectual property and some studios picked up by other companies. Another auction is planned to handle whatever's left over.
