Gunfire Games was founded in 2014 from alumni of Vigil Games. The studio has taken on that legacy, primarily with their Darksiders titles that they inherited from Vigil, having developed last year’s Darksiders 3. Now it seems they have a new nesting place, as the company joins the ever-growing THQ Nordic family.

As announced via press release by both THQ Nordic and Gunfire, the developer has been acquired by the publisher. The two have worked extensively together over the last few years, especially on reviving the Darksiders series. THQ Nordic hopes the acquisition will help strengthen its brand presence in the US.

“With the acquisition of Gunfire Games we are strengthening THQ Nordic’s footprint in the US and are adding an experienced and talented development team that we know very well from having collaborated on Darksiders,” THQ Nordic group CEO Lars Wingefors said in the press release. “Gunfire will contribute with premier development expertise to the group with realizable synergies from day one. It is with great anticipation of future projects we now welcome the team to the THQ Nordic family.”

Gunfire Games is in the process of finishing up their new shooter, Remnant: From the Ashes, which releases later this month. No doubt this also means that the Darksiders franchise will continue on, since it’s seemingly been successful for the two parties. Hopefully, this means a good level of security for the developer, and some new projects soon.
