Newsbrief: Court documents filed earlier this week show that Interplay acquired the rights to the FreeSpace franchise from THQ and Volition for a mere $7,500.

THQ was cut up and sold off earlier this year as part of its bankruptcy plans, and those IPs which were not bought in the initial round were then auctioned off through April and May.

Volition's space combat sim series FreeSpace was part of that second round of auctioning, and newly-filed documents show that the franchise's original publisher Interplay picked up the IP.

Interplay currently sells the FreeSpace games online via the Good Old Games website.
