THQ Nordic secures additional brands, including Risen and Sacred


from Andreas Bertits
THQ Nordic has announced that it has secured the rights to further brands from Koch Media. This could indicate that we can expect a continuation of about Sacred and Risen in the future.

If a company secures the rights to certain brands, then this indicates that something should also happen with these brands. This gives fans of the RPG series Sacred and Risen hope.

A change in trademark rights

THQ Nordic explained that he had secured the trademark rights to some interesting games. This includes:

  • Risen
  • Sacred
  • Rush for Berlin
  • Second sight
  • Singles: Flirt Up Your Life

It is not yet confirmed that sequels or remaster / remakes of these games are coming, but there is hope. Another part of the Risen series or a new Sacred would certainly welcome the players. However, it cannot be assumed that such games – if they really come – will appear in the near future.

It is not known here what Koch Media intends to do with these brands. Maybe we will get new games for the series in the next few years.
