Nordic Games has announced today that is one of the successful bidders in THQ’s auction process. Subject to approval of the bankruptcy court overseeing THQ’s case, Nordic Games will acquire more than 150 SKU’s (Stock Keeping Unit) for a purchasing price of $4.9 million spanned across PC, Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony Platforms.
A few notable titles that Nordic Games picked up from THQ are Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs. ATV, Titan Quest, Supreme Commander, Frontlines, Stuntman, Juiced, Full Spectrum Warrior, and Destroy All Humans.
“First and foremost we are very happy about this deal which also turns over a new leaf for the entire Nordic Games Group. In the long term, we either want to cooperate with the original creators or best possible developers in order to work on sequels or additional content for these titles” comments Lars Wingefors, owner and CEO of Nordic Games Group AB. “A very important point for us is not to dash into several self-financed multi-million dollar projects right away, but rather to continue our in-depth analysis of all titles and carefully selecting different financing models for developing new instalments of acquired IPs.”
Nordic Games invites everybody who is interested to visit Nordic Games’ forums and openly discuss on how these titles should be moving forward: http://forum.nordicgames.at/forumdisplay.php?909-Discussion-about-THQ-IPs.
