Nordic Games reincorporated as THQ Nordic
Posted on August 12, 2016 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News
Nordic Games is making a significant change to its company today. They’ve been reincorporated, and will be known as “THQ Nordic” going forward.
An official statement reads:
Whilst we take great pride in our Swedish roots and accomplished a great deal under the Nordic Games masthead, we decided it was time to incorporate the THQ name. Those key brands will continue to shape our business in a meaningful way going forward, and THQ Nordic represents a core approach of doing much more than “owning” a highly competitive portfolio of IP. We cherish them, and align them with the very best development resources to expand upon them with the level of experience that communities and established fan bases expect and deserve. Side note – another upside to this whole rebrand thing is we don’t get asked about the Nordic Game parties at Gamescom anymore – it was the other guys who threw them. With this rebrand we are entering the next phase in our company’s evolution.
As of now we have 23 game projects in development, 13 thereof have not yet been publicly announced, but are sure to be in the next months. Needless to say, the majority of these projects are based on former THQ owned IPs and franchises.
Today’s news was accompanied by a new logo, pictured above. About the image, THQ Nordic founder/owner Lars Wingefors said:
“As for the new logo design, we literally stumbled across it when browsing some art files, after we bought the THQ trademark and figured: why not? We hope the reception from our partners is less ambivalent but we’re OK either way. We invite you to our Gamescom booth to play our games and see the logo in large-scale format.”
