The final round of auctions for the rights to now-bankrupt game publisher THQ’s numerous franchises is over, and publisher Nordic Games has obtained some familiar titles as a result. Darksiders, Red Faction, Stuntman, Full Spectrum Warrior, Destroy All Humans, MX vs ATV, Supreme Commander, Frontlines, Juiced and Titan Quest are now the property of Nordic to do as they see fit with.
The company has announced plans to both re-release several of these titles as well as look into developing additional content and sequels to some (just which games these include were unspecified). Lars Wingefors, the company CEO, had the following to say:
“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. 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 installments of acquired IPs.”
