In what will go down in history as one of the biggest dick-moves in the video game industry, THQ has fired its San Diego team right when E3 was going on. According to Kristan Reed from Pocket Gamer, they hoped that with all this E3 news going on, the recent sacking of an entire team would get buried under it. Let’s hope it doesn’t.

“THQ fired everyone at THQ San Diego today Dan. They did it on  an E3 day to bury the news. Bad form.”

More on this story as it develops.

    Good thing they just got sacked from making UFC then eh.

    Serves the wankers right.

    • Don’t be ridiculous. The only reason that THQ canned the entire staff was due to nothing more than the company'[s financial troubles resulting from the massive failure of the PS3 and 360 UDraw tablets. The company is in a major cost-cutting mode, and it’s tragic to see things turn out this way.
