THQ Nordic has snapped up Koch Media in a 121 million euro deal that sees the Darksiders owner get its paws on a number of mega-hit franchises.
Koch Media is the owner of publishing behemoth Deep Silver, who in turn rules over the likes of Dead Island and Saints Row. Not only does the deal mean that THQ Nordic now has all those IPs under its belt, but it also hoovers up all of Deep Silver’s studios too, such as Volition and Dambuster.
It’s an interesting development, seeing as how the original incarnation of THQ went under over five years ago resulting in a sale of its various properties, with Deep Silver purchasing Saints Row, Metro, and Homefront (the latter from Crytek). With Nordic Games later snapping up the THQ name in 2013, the studio has now got its hands back on all those major franchises once more.
