Relic Enterainment IP

I am just going to put this out there.
I think if THQ goes under blizzard should buy relic, I mean relic entertainment has an insane IP

Company of Heroes - Seriously one of the best strategy game series

Homeworld - Awesome beyond belief. I still haven't played a Space RTS that could compete with the story and gameplay. [Sins of a Solar Empire I feel was a different type of game.]

Dawn of War - Ok not a huge fan, But Dawn of War 2 was great
----

Personally I really would hate it to fall into EA and have them ruin all the franchises. [*cough* Command and Conquer *cough*] Strategy games should be handled by companies that like strategy.

Probably no one will agree with me. But I still can dream.

I played Homeworld when I was very young. I liked it.

As far as the merging goes, Relic still goes under THQ (who still holds), not Blizzard (who still belongs to vivendi due to 60% stake), which made your question nonexist.

THQ is in trouble but speaking Blizzard of acquiring it or relic specifically is doubtful. (Blizzard itself is looking to be sold)

This is somewhat relevant.

That was Q2. But now:

Speaking of the Homeworld series, I'm surprised they still aren't available on Steam or GOG.

What's the hold-up?

While I can get it unconventionally as well as I still have the old CD box.
