THQ lives again!

Written by David Stellmack

Nordic Games acquires rights

Just when we thought that we had saw the last of THQ and the THQ saga, we have learned that publisher Nordic Games as acquired the rights to the THQ trademark, name, and logo. Also this includes the rights to online properties like the THQ Facebook site for example.

Since no one knew who Nordic Games was and the company secured the rights to over 100 THQ sku(s) in the auction, the idea for a second deal became obvious. Nordic plans on publishing games under the THQ name and logo starting with its first new release which will be a new MX vs. ATV title that is being developed the regular development team that worked on the game previously.

Nordic is a small company and with the large amount of IP that it has required, it is now a player, but much more of a real player if the company proceeds using the THQ logo going forward. Nordic has said that they have heard the fans of some of the games begging for the company to bring out new versions of the titles that were bagged by Nordic. Nordic is trying to get it right by providing ample development time and trying hard to make sure that the games that it releases going forward are the right games that are done right.
