After the THQ Humble Bundle recently brought in over $5 million (split between THQ, charity donations, and “tips” to the bundle’s organizers), President Jason Rubin admits that he’s looking at possible markets differently lately. Rubin Tweeted that he “got the Linux message loud and clear” from the bundle.

So, there’s opportunity for THQ in selling computer games outside of the standard Windows ecosystem. Rubin has no plans yet, but he says the analysis has started, and the company is “committed to look at anything that makes sense” in terms of releasing titles on platforms other than simply Windows. In the past, THQ has released Mac versions of its Company of Heroes series through a third-party publisher, but it sounds like Rubin is considering a more widespread solution for cross-platform releases after this feedback. He says THQ should have more to announce soon.
