Nordic keen to continue with Darksiders and other acquired THQ titles

As you may know, Swedish developer Nordic Games recently snapped up THQ franchises such as Darksiders, Red Faction and the MX series. Now It's revealed that it has plans for those franchises, although it's still working to gather the remaining assets which are spread amongst the previous developers and THQ itself.

It seems that Nordic is keen to continue with franchises such as Darksiders, Red Faction and MX, although these will likely require an outside partner to develop since Nordic is quite a small studio.

Other lesser known titles such as Titan Quest and Deadly Creatures are also in consideration for development. Titan Quest, was a 2006 Diablo-esq hack-and-slash action RPG, while Deadly Creatures came to Wii in 2009, letting players take control of a scorpion or tarantula in battles against other insects, rodents and reptiles.

Nordic also owns uDraw, de Blob, Destroy All Humans! and more, while smaller titles such as Double Fine's Stacking and Costume Quest also come under the Nordic umbrella, although it's thought that Double Fine are keen to buy the rights back for these.

Be funny as hell if they bought them and had no intention of doing anything with them.

More Darksiders would be nice, providing it's as fun as the first and not complete drag like the 2nd. Famine next
