Company of Heroes 2

SEGA purchased Relic Entertainment and the Company of Heroes series off of THQ during the company’s bankruptcy auction back in January.

Since then, Company of Heroes 2 has launched, but SEGA is looking to reclaim money THQ received through pre-orders it made from Steam with a lawsuit filed in the Delaware US Bankruptcy Court.

20,755 copies were reportedly pre-ordered through Steam between September 2012 and January 24th calculating in at about $1,345,301.29. Steam took a standard 30 percent of the earnings leaving the remaining $941,710.93 found in the lawsuit.

$508,877.85 of this money was transferred to THQ from Steam on December 19th, the day it filed for bankruptcy, SEGA claims that money is owed by priority. This is but a small sum of the $200 million SEGA and other creditors are seeking from the collapsed publisher.
