New titles to be published under old brand

Nordic Games is set to revive the THQ trademark and begin publishing titles under the name.

Speaking to Polygon, Nordic GM Klemens Kreuzer said it had negotiated the rights to the THQ trademark because its own publishing brand wasn't very well known.

Last year Nordic Games won the rights to a number of franchises during the THQ auction, including Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs ATV, Supreme Commander and more.

"It was kind of surprise to some industry veterans and players that we were the winner of the auction of the THQ titles," said Kreuzer.

"The challenging fact is nobody has ever heard about Nordic Games before [the THQ auction]. There were so many articles with the headlines ‘Who the fuck is Nordic Games?’ We said, okay they were right.

"We have seen an uplift in the name of Nordic Games, and what we have also done is we have made a second deal with THQ where we bought the THQ trademark."
