Nordic acquires THQ trademark

The THQ brand is to make a return.

The publishing label disappeared last year as part of a process that saw Nordic swoop for a host of THQ IP such as Darksiders, Red Faction, Stuntman, MX vs ATV and Destroy All Humans.

Now Polygon reports that Nordic has also acquired the THQ brand itself and that it intends to sell some of its titles under the label.

"It was kind of surprise to some industry veterans and players that we were the winner of the auction of the THQ titles," Nordic GM Klemens Kruezer said. "The challenging fact is nobody has ever heard about Nordic Games before. There were so many articles with the headlines ‘Who the fuck is Nordic Games?’. We said, okay they were right.

"We are small team. The expectations from outside regarding the IPs of THQ are really high. We see it everyday on our Facebook sites.”

Kruezer also acknowledged the hunger for information regarding a potential new Darksiders title, asking for patience as the team figures out how to do the license justice.
