Thanks to its never-ending spree of acquisitions of studios and gaming IP alike, THQ Nordic has brought a number of defunct franchises back from the dead over the last few years. One in particular that many were happy to see coming back was Kingdoms of Amalur, with developer KAIKO’s 2020 expanded remaster, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning.

Now, Kaiko seems to be at work on another project set in an established IP. That’s as per the careers page on the studio’s website, which lists a number of open positions that it’s currently looking to recruit for. Interestingly, the page mentions that the developer is working on “an original game based on a high profile THQ Nordic IP in the action-adventure genre.”

That doesn’t necessarily narrow it down by much, if we’re being honest. THQ Nordic has a vast library of IPs, and the brief aforementioned description of the project provided by Kaiko doesn’t do much to overtly point at any one of them in particular. That said, the fact that it is described as an “action-adventure” game would suggest that it’s not referring to action RPG series Kingdoms of Amalur.

In addition to the aforementioned remaster, Kaiko has worked on a number of other expanded re-releases for THQ Nordic in recent years, including the likes of Red Faction: Guerrilla ReMARStered, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, and Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition. The developer also made a new and original expansion for Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning titled Fatesworn.
