When Midway went under, THQ bought the IP. But, then THQ went under, so who owns it now?

From what I've found through Google, I think either Nordic or WB owns the IP. But, I'm not sure.

I would kill for a port of Dark Legacy on the PC.

I'd kill for a Rampage port on the Vita or 3DS, and I think it was under Midway too before it went under. I'm assuming that I'll never see it on a handheld. I am sad. I'd like to know who owns it now too.

I do. Tell me what you'd like and if you sell me on the idea I'll make you a producer for the next Gauntlet game.

I could only find a few franchises/developer studios that were sold in auction.

According to copyright law in the US, rights that aren't transferred maintain their protected status for 95 years after last publication, or 120 years after creation. Assuming no one purchased the rights to the game, which is possible, or power of attorney wasn't gained by Wells Fargo over the bankruptcy, or by someone else, the Gauntlet series would enter public domain around 2105.

You can buy Rampage World Tour off of PSN and transfer it to your Vita, assuming it is still on PSN. That will probably be the closest thing we can have to that.

Hmmm....I'd only be 124 years old then....I might throw up a bid.

By then, science may have found the cure for death. So, being alive in 2105 to see the proper sequel to G:DL may be a reality.

We only have 92 years left to draft our ideas.
