Nordic Games has rebranded itself as THQ Nordic. Why? Well, as the official press released issued by the company says: Why not?

Nordic Games was the one to buy many of THQ’s IPs when the latter went under back in 2013, including the popular Darksiders. Now, it appears they seek to completely replace the now defunct publisher.

“Whilst we take great pride in our Swedish roots and accomplished a great deal under the Nordic Games masthead, we decided it was time to incorporate the THQ name,” reads the release. “Those key brands will continue to shape our business in a meaningful way going forward, and THQ Nordic represents a core approach of doing much more than ‘owning’ a highly competitive portfolio of IP. We cherish them, and align them with the very best development resources to expand upon them with the level of experience that communities and established fan bases expect and deserve.”

Right now, THQ Nordic has 23 game projects in development, 13 of which were never publicly announced. The majority of these 23 projects are based on former THQ IPs. We can expect to hear more about these project at Gamescom 2016 later this month.
