It appears THQ Nordic are hunting assets once more, or as they put it, “In essence, that means that they’re back at it again with the acquisition of partly forgotten, but classic game IPs.” This time they have grabbed everything to do with first-person military themed game franchises in the shape of Novalogic.
You may not recognise the name as they were prolific in the early noughties, and haven’t released anything since 2009.
“After 30 years of creating ground breaking Computer and Video Games we are proud to pass the baton to THQ Nordic. As individuals, they are enthusiastic gamers and as a company have shown the agility and acumen needed to propel our industry towards a much-needed reset”, comments John Garcia, owner, founder and CEO of NovaLogic Inc. “We are happy to see the franchises we created in such capable hands.”
THQ Nordic seem to know they have a lot on their plate, what with all the THQ and Nordic games, and have opened the door for other devs to pitch sequels to Novalogic games.
“We are extremely satisfied with the new additions to our portfolio, and also very thrilled about how to continue some of said franchises, we are open for talks in this regard if any developer approaches us with a concept for a potential sequel to any IP,” said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director, THQ Nordic.
Franchises picked up in the sale include Delta Force, Comanche, Joint Operations, Armored Fist, F-22, F-16, and Tachyon: The Fringe.
