While it won't come as any shock, THQ has filed a FORM 8-K with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("Item 5.02 – Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers") that it sacked its top executives on January 30, 2013. Given that the company was sold off to various bidders in bits and pieces in an auction in late January, it makes sense that they would inevitably have to let their executives go into the wild. The online filing reads as follows:
"THQ Inc. (the “Company”) terminated the employment of Brian J. Farrell as Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Jason Rubin as President of the Company, and Jason Kay as Chief Strategy Officer of the Company, each without cause and effective January 30, 2013."

And so it goes that one of the world's top-five video game publishers is finally laid to rest. RIP THQ.
