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 ^^

I agree. Crytek did similar things, granted other stuff helped to bring them down.

Crytek got into their heads they are AAA powerhouse. THQ Nordic and Koch are mostly focused on A/AA games.

But they do seem like they somewhat went bananas with all these acquisitions.



I want to hope those are 77 unique games, and not just mostly DLC and remasters of older/very old games.

Also hoping they don't pull crap with locking their game to the EGS, because they should be selling those games on all storefronts.

Please let one of them be Time Splitters 4 or a Time Splitters collection!! :D

They will probably end up re-releasing every catalogue-titles they have the rights to

Well, they acquired a boatload of IPs, sometimes without the corresponding studio (Atari really let go ofAlone in the Dark - are they crazy). This only makes sense if they plan on ports and remasters.

Would that count towards 77 games in development?

You can bet your ass on that. Look at the recently released games by them, they consist mostly of rematers and ports.

This is nice! I just want THQ Nordic to do a few things:

-Absorb Koch Media, Deep Silver, and any other publishing division they own into THQ Nordic

-Take their THQ Nordic ABCDEFGHIJK division or whatever the fuck it's called and just absorb it into THQ Nordic

-Don't do anti-consumer thingz plez

The management at the company seems a little bit hectic from an outsider's perspective, but if true nothing that can't be fixed with some restructuring.

Consider they own Darksiders, Goat Simulator, the publishers of Metro:Exodus, and now Kingdom Come Deliverance ... they're quickly becoming one of the most exciting publishers in the industry! I just hope that they can both develop big titles AS WELL as smaller-scale AAA or AA titles ... because that's a market that really needs some love.

I don't know. I just assumed the 77 titles include the ones made by Koch Media (which in turn includes Deep Silver). As THQ Nordic has their headquarters now in Austria, I also assumed Koch Media is the headquarter of THQ Nordic.

sigh.

Doubt it. THQ Nordic acts pretty clever. All their projects are small, low risk, with high profatibility especially considering it gets ported to everythere.

Darksiders III probably was one of their biggest recent releases. They said they were happy with it's performance. But if you look at sales from VGC, it sold less than 400K between PS4 and XBox One. The first Darksiders sold more than 1.3 million and the second more than 1.6 million (without the remasters) on PS3 and X360. So THQ gave the project a pretty conservative budget for starters.

I would assume so, like i said earlier how can any publisher have 77 original games in development

I guess not unless they're mostly re-releasing old games they still owned.

They do. Look at their recent releases, mostly remasters and ports.

No, I bet 50 of these projects are remasters, ports or DLC. This is what they do mostly.

Oh, forgot about those. Is Red Faction: Guerilla Remarstered Eddition good?
