Nordic Games acquires Desperados and Silver IPs from Atari

Growing publisher Nordic Games has moved to acquire yet more IP.

Following the news that many of Atari’s owned IP were put up for sale last month, Nordic Games has moved to capture two of its licenses – Desperados and Silver.

The former is a stealth-based RTS franchise set in the Wild West that has to date seen two releases – 2001 title Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive and 2006’s Desperados 2: Coopers Revenge.

The Silver IP is less well known. The action RPG was released on PC in 1999 and later on Dreamcast.

These are far from the first IP acquisitions Nordic has made in 2013.

The company emerged as a central figure in THQ’s IP sale earlier this year, securing rights to brands such as Darksiders, Red Faction, Stuntman, Full Spectrum Warrior, Destroy All Humans, MX vs ATV, Supreme Commander, Frontlines, Juiced and Titan Quest.
