SEGA Sues THQ For £630,000 Over Unpaid Company Of Heroes 2 Pre-Orders

The THQ horse may be dead, but the flogging never stops. SEGA have filed a lawsuit asking for £640,000 to recoup Company Of Heroes 2 pre-orders made on Steam, the revenue from which apparently went to THQ rather than Relic Games or their new publisher.

As per a claim made with the Delaware Bankruptcy Court [via EG], SEGA contends that 20,755 Steam pre-orders were placed between September 2012 to 24th January 2013, generating revenue of over $1.3 million before Valve's 30% cut. Valve reportedly paid the money to THQ after 19th December 2012, when they applied for bankruptcy protection.

Relic Games were bought by SEGA during the THQ asset auction for $26 million. They join a burgeoning club of creditors who allege that THQ still owes $200 million all-told. Whether anything comes of this remains to be seen.
