Forums - Gaming Discussion - THQ Nordic currently has 77 games in development!

"If neither of those truly displayed what THQ Nordic has in the works to you, their latest financial report confirmed that it had a staggering 77 “game projects” in development during the fourth fiscal quarter alone. Only 11 of those games were released during that fiscal quarter; meanwhile, 25 new projects were started by THQ Nordic in the past couple of months alone.

Looking more broadly, 29 of the 77 mentioned projects “had been announced,” so those likely consist of games like BioMutant, Scarf, and Desperados 3. That leaves 12 unannounced projects that we haven’t even heard about but have been in development for more than a few months. If you are a fan of THQ Nordic or one of the numerous IP or studios it owns, it seems like you’ll have something to look forward to in the foreseeable future.

613 people within THQ Nordic are currently working on games while another 871 externally are manning other projects, bringing the total to 1,484."

My guess they count ports and remasters, cause publisher no matter how big has 77 games in development

 

edit:Darksiders is my ultimate guilty pleasure franchises so hearing this is awesome:

Net sales in our Vienna based business area THQ Nordic increased 38% to SEK 352 million, largely driven by the release of Darksiders 3. The game has performed within management’s expectations and has recouped all the investments made in development and marketing during the quarter. In 2019, several DLC’s will be released that will give the game a further boost. Darksiders remains one of the Group’s key IP’s

Nothing to see here, move along

That sounds like too few people for that many projects....

However they must be doing something right, their profits and revenue, and growth rates are all crazy.
So hopefully it works out for them.

Yeah alot of those have to be smaller titles, and ports/remasters.



I really liked Nordic Games before they got THQ. I'm surprised at how many developers they've acquired though. For such a small company, they are certainly making a huge leap. Let's hope they are successful and become a juggernaut of a company that produces great games for large audiences.

This usually the kind of growth that'll get you a "nice" blowout in the face by the end ...

I really do hope they can find some relative success though ^^

They went berserk on acquisitions (latest being developers of Kingdom Come Deliverance), really hope it works out for them, I like their focus on A and AA games.

That's pretty impressive considering the game failed critically and didn't sell that well either. Probably had a much lower budget than the others.

 If I had to guess, 80% of those are ports/remasters. That's how they can have so few staff members, but work on 77 games at once.
