Nordic games have taken the wise, if somewhat unexpected, step of re branding themselves as THQNordic. Nordic snapped up a load (but not all) of THQ titles when the company went under, and found themselves thrust into the spotlight.
One could say the most defining moment for our company happened in 2013, grabbing headlines like; “Who the FUCK is Nordic Games?”, “Darksiders Gets Bought By…Nordic Games?”, and “Nordic Games explains who the f they are, plans for THQ assets”. Funny enough, back then, this was so true. Until that point, we had been a low profile publisher uttering expletives of our own along the way, and all of a sudden we found ourselves in the international gaming media spotlight.
And now the good news; THQNordic has 23 (!) games in development, 13 of which have not been announced and “the majority of these projects are based on former THQ owned IPs and franchises.” Those could include Darksiders, Destroy All Humans, MX vs. ATV, and Red Faction.
As you might have guessed the press release announcing the rebrand isn’t the usual solemn and business like statement you normally get.
As for the new logo design, we literally stumbled across it when browsing some art files, after we bought the THQ trademark and figured: why not? We hope the reception from our partners is less ambivalent but we’re OK either way. We invite you to our Gamescom booth to play our games and see the logo in large-scale format.
