It's been revealed that Nordic Games was the highest bidder for Darksiders, MX vs ATV and Red Faction in the final THQ auction.
Nordic Games is the Austrian parent company of JoWood, DreamCatcher and The Adventure Company, whose titles include the likes of best known for Arcania, Painkiller and Spellforce. In addition, other owned software and licences such as Destroy all Humans!, Summoner, Marvel Super Hero Squad, Supreme Commander and quite a few more titles were also snapped up by the company.
"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," CEO Lars Wingefors said in a statement.
"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."
We aren't sure what this means for the future of any of these titles, however we are pleased to see that game's such as Darksiders still have some hope for the future.
