THQ upset over 'conspiracy theory'claims

THQ denies it tried to bury thenews of its San Diego studio closing under E3 excitement
Yesterday after EA won the rights to THQ's UFC series, and just before E3 begun, news flooded the internet that the THQ San Diego studiowas informed of its closure.
Needless to say people questioned the motives behind THQ informing the studio of its closure on the first day of E3
Jason Rubin, the newly appointed president of THQ, told IGN "it's a conspiracy theory to think we were trying to bury the news in E3. You can flip that and and ask what was the best time for the UFC and EA to announce their new partnership? Obviously, E3. It's simply not the case that we tried to buryit at E3."
Rubin continued to hit back at the allegations, stating "It is an extremely painful thing to have to lay someone off, especially in this economy. Wedid right by them. We did much more than was required by California law to help them."
Rubin expressed his sympathies to those who lost their jobs, but says "it's essential for THQ to focus on its future." Concluding that"as far as development goes and as far as teams go we are the perfect size to go forward."
Is THQ really upset that people think they tried to hide the closure of its San Diego studio under E3 hype, or are they just trying to save face because they were caught out? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
