The THQ Nordic wiki last edited by BGoldenTLE on 08/15/16 08:43PM View full history


Founded in 2011, Nordic Games (or Nordic Games Group, or Nordic Games Publishing, or Nordic Games Holding) came to prominence after they purchased JoWood Entertainment, a publisher based in Austria that had recently undergone bankruptcy. This purchase also included JoWood subsidiaries DreamCatcher Interactive and in turn their graphic adventure-focused division The Adventure Company.

In 2013, Nordic Games would go on to acquire the lion's share of intellectual properties from the dismantling of THQ. They acquired the Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs. ATV franchises among others. Later the same year, Nordic also purchased the Silver and Desperados IPs from Atari.

In 2014, it was announced that they also bought the rights to use the THQ brand on future products. In 2016 the company rebranded itself as THQ Nordic.
