THQ Nordic grabs the trademark rights


from Karsten Scholz
The people in charge at THQ Nordic and Koch Media have entered into an exchange transaction in which some exciting video game brands were involved. While Koch Media receives the licenses for Painkiller and Red Faction, THQ Nordic can enjoy the rights for Sacred, Risen, Rush for Berlin, Second Sight and Singles: Flirt Up Your Life.

Since Nordic Games was renamed THQ Nordic in August 2016, a lot has happened at the Austrian computer games publisher. Those responsible invested a lot of money to acquire studios and the rights of numerous brands. There are significantly more than 100 licenses in total, a total of 80 games are said to have been under development in March last year, 48 of the projects had not yet been announced at the time. The upcoming launch titles include Desperados 3, Biomutant, Wasteland 3 and Destroy all Humans.

The publisher therefore not only collects the numerous licenses so that they can be collected in the archive. This finding could be very exciting in view of the latest brand growth. The people in charge at THQ Nordic and Koch Media have concluded an exchange transaction in which some interesting video game brands were involved. While Koch Media receives the licenses for Painkiller and Red Faction, THQ Nordic can enjoy the rights for Sacred, Risen, Rush for Berlin, Second Sight and Singles: Flirt Up Your Life.

Piranha Bytes’s developers are already working on another project, to be announced later this year (Elex 2 anyone ?!), but afterwards the Ruhrpott-Devs might be interested in a new Risen part. The Remake of Gothic, on which THQ Nordic Barcelona is currently working, but shows that the old Piranha Bytes series could also end up in another studio. Oh, and we wouldn't have anything against a new Sacred with the old strengths, a lot of fine tuning and a more modern graphics engine. Or what do you mean?
