Sega is trying to recoup money from shuttered publisher THQ, and is demanding that it get $941,710.93 from THQ, the amount the latter received in the form of 20,755 preorders of Company of Heroes 2 on Steam.
According to relevant court documents, Sega filed a claim on the 2nd July with the Delaware U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Sega's claim lists $508,877.85 as entitled to priority, as it was paid to THQ after the 19th Dec, 2012, which happens to be the day THQ filed for bankruptcy protection.
Sega bid $26.6 million for developer Relic Entertainment and the Company of Heroes IP when THQ was selling off its properties in auction.
