Shacknews has published a report that THQ owe various companies $200 million dollars including Lucasfilm for royalties on mobile games after filing for bankruptcy.
The claims (via Polygon) include studios like Volition and Vigil. The company also owes non-developers, like Microsoft for more than $200,000 in licensing fee, or UFC parent company Zuffa for $1.9 million in unpaid royalties. Codemasters seeks $1 million in royalties, and Double Fine is seeking $595,000 in royalties related to Stacking, Costume Quest, and the PlayStation Plus promotions surrounding those games.
Some of the largest sums come from THQ subsidiaries in Europe, Asia, and Australia, thanks to loans and interest. The ESA is seeking just over $190,000 for booth space reserved for E3 2013 that will go unused, and will instead be a "lounge area." Even LucasFilm has filed a claim for royalties on mobile games.
