THQ: gone but not forgotten, particularly among its creditors.

Now, Sega is suing THQ to the tune of over $941,000 US (630,000) [PDF], the amount it alleges THQ received from Valve for Steam-based Company of Heroes 2 preorders.

Sega bought the Company of Heroes IP and developer Relic for $26.6 million during the auction for THQ's assets following bankruptcy proceedings earlier this year. However, Sega alleges that Valve paid THQ $508,877.85 in preorder revenue (after Valve's 30 percent cut) after THQ's December 19th 2012 bankruptcy filing date, making that amount entitled to priority to Sega. The rest can apparently come later.

Sega is far from alone in insisting the bankrupted publisher owes it money. With a long list of creditors, THQ stands to pay out tens of millions of dollars, if the courts agree -- and if it even has the funds.
