Is A Cancelled Video Game Title That You Loved About To Experience A Rebirth? Only THQ Nordic Knows
Do you believe in life after death?
How about the undead?
Halloween is still eight months away, but THQ Nordic is adding another limb to its growing catalog.
The game studio that Engadget’s Jessica Conditt dubbed the “Frankenstein monster of video games” recently purchased Warhorse Studios which released Kingdom Come: Deliverance last year. The game is as well-known for whitewashing controversy as it is for sales of over 2 million units across multiple platforms
But the real story here is the rise of THQ Nordic and the remastered games that have allowed it to increase its profits in 2018 by 713%.
That's not a typo.
Don't Call It A Comeback
Games like Darksiders, Jagged Alliance, Red Faction, Desperados and MX vs. ATV have been resuscitated under the THQ Nordic. The Warhorse Studios purchase was preceded by the addition of TimeSplitters and Second Sight and the high-profile acquisition of the Kingdoms of Amalur IP originally developed by 38 Studios.

So, what does the knowledge that THQ owns over 200 previously owned games and 10 studios including Koch Media mean?
