GameTap Loads up THQ Titles

GameTap announced today the signing of a partnership with THQ. This deal will give the broadband entertainment network company access to THQ's PC titles for digital download, with certain titles available for free play on GameTap's ad-supported website. The titles included in this agreement include Company of Heroes, Supreme Commander, Titan Quest, Saints Row 2, PuzzleQuest and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

"We are excited to be adding THQ's roster of top content to GameTap," said Ricardo Sanchez, vice president of content and creative director for GameTap. "With this new deal, subscribers and website visitors will enjoy great games from THQ, including Company of Heroes and Red Faction."

"Our new partnership with GameTap allows both a brand new audience and fans alike to enjoy our titles and franchise games online," said Adrienne Lauer, National Sales Director, Market Development for THQ, "Digital distribution is a great way to extend the reach of our properties and GameTap is an ideal outlet for this effort."

GameTap's future earlier this year did not look bright when the editorial staff of Gametap Read was dissolved, though Sanchez commented afterwards to GameDaily BIZ, "The rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated."
