They make some really good games but you can't help thinking that if they had made the likes of Homefront better they wouldn't be in this pickle. As for Ubi getting some IP's I think that they'll do a good job with most of them.
That really isn't the reason at all. They HAVE done a stirling job with many of the IP's, CoH is excellent, DoW was phenomenal, DoW 2, whilst not amazing, still sold well enough to have 2 expansions and I believe Space Marine sold decent enough numbers, Saints Row goes from strength to strength, the WWE games consistently sell well, Darksiders is a great franchise and Homefront, whilst not the CoD beater they intended, still did decent enough numbers to warrant a sequel and THQ to list it as a top IP for their future success. All things considered, they haven't done badly at all.
Their real problem has been outright shitty investments. Buying up a lot of crappy licences that nobody cares about, spending so much money on that Udraw tablet that everybody knew was a failure waiting to happen, things like that.
