Nordic Games Grabs DarkSiders and Couple of other Franchises
Darksiders 3 probably has a chance.
Sweden-based company Nordic Games have picked up Darksiders, Red Faction and MX vs ATV for a total of $4.9 million. This contract also includes franchises such as Supreme Commander, Frontlines, Stuntman, Juiced, Full Spectrum Warror, Destroy All Humans and more.
Lars Wingefors, owner and CEO of Nordic Games Group AB, said, “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.”
He continued, “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.”
THQ and Nordic Games are waiting for the US Bankruptcy Count to get the stuff going for sale on May 13th, 2013.
