Where do you see THQ's IP's going in case they go under?

With the rumors that they dropped all development to their 2014 line up, and the latest news of NASDAQ threatening to delist them THQ aren't looking in a very good shape. While this might all blow over just like with the whole EA/2K hostile buyout a few years ago there also a big chance that by this time next year there won't be a THQ. In case that happens where do you think their ip's end up.

For me I see this scenario:

EA takes their WWE licensing with upcoming Warhammer 40,000 MMO, seeing how they already have the Warhammer MMO. In this case I see them positioning it as a successor to their Warhammer Online MMO.

Activision might try gunning for their Fronlines/Homefront IP in order to have another military FPS with COD. inSANE also end up with Activision and is handed off to Sledgehammer Games. Also, there's a strong possibility that the UFC licensing end up with them.

Take 2 will end up with the Metro and Darksiders franchises.

There's a third possibility that one of those companies will buy them lock, stock. In this case which publisher do feel has the best chance to end up buying them? Personally, and I don't why, I feel Take 2 seems like the likely owner.
