Digital entertainment company Koch Media has secured the intellectual property rights for two of the more successful video game franchises previously owned by the in-bankrupcy THQ.  In addition to the acquisition of Metro and Saints Row, Koch also gained control of Volition, a Chicago-based game development studio.

Deep Silver, Koch Media's international publishing division, will lead all further development and marketing on the Saints Row and Metro franchises, each of which boast millions of units sold worldwide and vast, dedicated fan bases.

"These franchises hold a special place in the hearts and minds of anyone who loves exceptional video games," said Geoff Mulligan, COO of Deep Silver, Inc.  "We're thrilled to usher in a new era for these franchises and are proud to welcome the visionaries and talented forces at Volition on board."

Koch Media and Deep Silver say they will roll out plans for each franchise in the near future.
