Which means that we could also be seeing the return of some classic franchises as THQ Nordic owns the rights to Darksiders, MX vs. ATV, Red Faction and Titan Quest. Since purchasing a number of IP rights and the THQ name, this re-branding has been a long time coming for Nordic Games. A publisher and developer in its own right, Nordic Games has recently remastered titles like Darksiders 2, so here's hoping this paves the way for Darksiders 3.
And a new Red Faction. Plus, Titan Quest 2.
Lars Wingefors, chief executive of THQ Nordic had the following to say.
"While we take great pride in our Swedish roots and accomplished a great deal under the Nordic Games masthead, we decided it was time to incorporate the THQ name. Those key brands will continue to shape our business in a meaningful way going forward, and THQ Nordic represents a core approach of doing much more than owning a highly competitive portfolio of IP. We cherish them, and align them with the very best development resources to expand upon them with the level of experience that communities and established fan bases expect and deserve."
And for those of you who might be of the Nordic Games are too small to really replicate the output of THQ during its heyday camp, they do currently have 23 titles in active development. 13 of which are yet to be announced.
And something tells us Darksiders 3 is definitely one of those games. Maybe.
