THQ Nordic Acquisitions

Shopaholic company THQ Nordic seems to have realized it has been letting its normally hyperactive shopping cart sit idle for too long. That would explain the news of the acquisition of three different companies in one combined announcement. Here's word on the new members of the extended family:

  • Appeal Studios SA; THQ Nordic GmbH acquires Charleroi (Belgium-based) Appeal Studios– the developer behind Outcast (1999). Appeals Studios S.A. (“Appeal Studios”) to become a 100% subsidiary of THQ Nordic GmbH focussing on creating an innovative Open-world Action-Adventure which has not been officially announced.
  • KAIKO GmbH; THQ Nordic GmbH acquires Frankfurt based KAIKO– the developer behind Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning and its upcoming expansion Fatesworn (among others). KAIKO to become a 100% subsidiary of THQ Nordic GmbH with focus on asset-care (remakes, remasters,) and developing new content to selected IPs.
  • Massive Miniteam GmbH; THQ Nordic proudly announces that it is becoming a grandparent company via the acquisition of German game studio Massive Miniteam executed by its 100% subsidiary HandyGames. We are not feeling old writing this, no, YOU are old!!! Massive Miniteam is a motivated and highly creative development team working with HandyGames on several titles.
