THQ Nordic have picked up another IP to add to their collection, the 1999 shooter Outcast, created Belgian developer Appeal and originally released by Infogrames. A remake of that game, Outcast: Second Contact, landed on consoles and PC last year but was decidedly average, scoring 5/10 in our review.
THQ nabbed the game off the original three creators rather than another publisher, presumably the rights for the IP reverted back to them at some point in the last twenty years. A sequel, Outcast II: The Lost Paradise, was in production at Infogrames but was left uncompleted when the company went bust.
