Koch Media Winning Bidder for Champaign-Based Volition
By Jeff Bossert
A German company has cast the winning bid for a Champaign-based video game design studio in Delaware bankruptcy court Wednesday.
Court documents show Koch Media bid just over $22-million for the company most known for developing the ‘Saints Row’ line of games.
Parent company THQ auctioned off its assets, including Volition, this week.
The German-based Koch owns the game publisher Deep Silver, and has been a distributor for THQ.
According to the News-Gazette, Volition general manager Dan Cermack says the company’s future looks ‘very positive.’
