I just have read the latest news about THQ's desperate financial struggle that already involved the closing of 6 internal game studios. Next prominent victim on the list: BHG!
Like they say in the article (unfortunately only in German language) is that THQ is now trying to find a buyer for BHG. If no one can be found within the next 2 months, they are most likely going to simply close it down.
This would ultimately bury any hope for a worthy successor to the arguably best RTS game ever.
