The auction of THQ's remaining intellectual properties has been completed and now await court approval. Court documents indicate that there were 17 bids, totaling about $6-7 million USD. Some of the IPs include: Darksiders, Red Faction, MX, and Homeworld. As of now, the winners of each individual auction are unknown.

Homeworld

What we do know is that TeamPixel lost out on the Homeworld IP. TeamPixel is in the process of creating their own Homeworld-inspired game, but also created a Kickstarter in an attempt to purchase rights to the RTS franchise. They raised $58,644 (and $13,675 on Indiegogo), but this was not enough to win the Homeworld IP. TeamPixel is now refunding its backers while turning its focus back to its own RTS.

UPDATE: A source tells Joystiq that the winners will be revealed Monday afternoon.
