Well, here’s a headline we never thought we’d write: THQ Nordic has an incredible 77 games in development. That figure’s accurate as of the end of last year, so is probably even higher now given its recent acquisition of Kingdom Come: Deliverance developer Warhorse Studios among others. While it’s possible this number may be bolstered by ongoing investment into existing titles like Darksiders III, that’s still a phenomenal statistic.
“We look forward to our most exciting year ever,” said jubilant CEO Lars Wingefors. “By the end of the quarter, we had a record 77 games under development. 48 of these are still in the pipeline waiting to be announced, including a few that are scheduled for release in 2019.”
For the 12 month period ending 31st December, the Swedish publisher saw its net sales increase by a staggering 713 per cent year-over-year to $447.6 million – although this jump can be directly attributed to its copious buyouts, with its purchase of Deep Silver being the largest driver. Nevertheless, with the organisation now having brands like TimeSplitters and Alone in the Dark under its umbrella, we’re fascinated to see how much more it can grow over the coming years.
