THQ is the publisher of Homefront (developed by Kaos Studios). It was founded in 1989 in the United States. It is known for the Dawn of war series, which happens in the fictional universe of Warhammer 40,000. The company also develops other electronics.
Trinity Acquisition Corporation was founded in 1989. In 1991, it merged with Toy Head-Quarters, a toy manufacturer founded in 1990 by Jack Friedman. The combined company branched out to the video game industry and adopted the name T*HQ, inspired by the first letters of Toy Head-Quarters even though Trinity Acquisition was the surviving entity. T*HQ was eventually renamed to THQ in 1994.
THQ declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in December 2012 and began liquidation of its assets the following month, with several properties either being acquired or auctioned to other developers. In addition, most of the remaining staff were laid off.
