    By the sounds of it there soon won't be anybody to buy; the only thing left will be IP

    Sony if they buy them will buy the IP, generally speaking looks like Crytek is the next THQ. Won't be the last dev to struggle though.

    Ryse cost a lot to make and they did not make it back. It got pretty poor reviews by most sites.

    I thought it was Deep Silver?

    Whoever it is, they will likely wait until bankruptcy, then snap up the desirable parts of the company whilst ignoring the liabilities. No point buying a company mid debt crysis when you can just wait for the auction and buy sans debts.

    Rumour has it Deep Silver are having problem of their own...

    and from what I hear [firends of friends kinda thing]... Crytek going under is a 'when' and not an 'if'...

    Cryteks problem is they expanded to fast and went chasing the money too hard.
