THQ Nordic has purchased a number of IP's and assets from NovaLogic and is seemingly open to developers pitching them ideas based on the franchises.
Following on from purchasing multiple IP's from the likes of THQ and Atari, THQ Nordic has purchased the rights to Delta Force, Comanche, Joint Operations, Armored Fist, Tachyon: The Fringe, F-22 and F-16 along with others that are currently unknown. The deal also sees THQ Nordic acquire the NovaLogic trademark.
"After 30 years of creating ground breaking Computer and Video Games we are proud to pass the baton to THQ Nordic,” said John Garcia, owner, founder and CEO of NovaLogic Inc. As individuals, they are enthusiastic gamers and as a company have shown the agility and acumen needed to propel our industry towards a much-needed reset. We are happy to see the franchises we created in such capable hands."
Interestingly THQ Nordic seems to want to use its newly acquired assets as soon as possible, with the company welcoming studios to pitch them ideas for any IP.
"NovaLogic pioneered military simulations and military-themed multiplayer shooters with vehicular combat and also clearly targeted at an adult audience," said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic. "We are extremely satisfied with the new additions to our portfolio, and also very thrilled about how to continue some of said franchises, we are open for talks in this regard if any developer approaches us with a concept for a potential sequel to any IP."
