[Update]: It took a while, but the classic horror game Alone in the Dark is a getting a modern reimagining!

THQ Nordic has recently announced that they have picked up the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur, an ill-fated and fairly forgotten RPG with a great deal of potential behind it. While we still haven't received any information about what they're actually planning to do with the Kingdoms of Amalur IP, you might be interested to hear that THQ Nordic has decided to continue expanding their repertoire even further!

To be more specific, THQ Nordic has now also acquired the rights to the classic Lovecraftian survival horror Alone in the Dark, as well as the turn-based strategy Act of War. I can't tell you anything about Act of War as I haven't even heard about it until now, but the original Alone in the Dark was a truly revolutionary game that unfortunately ended up getting its name tarnished with some buggy modern games and the 'classic' Uwe Boll movie.

So if THQ Nordic could actually create an Alone in the Dark survival horror game that continues on with the atmosphere and suspense present in the originals, that would be a pretty damn amazing development for a series that has ironically been left alone in the dark for many years now. Whether they're actually going to do so, I'm afraid I have absolutely no idea, but THQ Nordic's recent track record has been quite good, so I must admit I have high hopes for these new acquisitions.

Once more information is revealed I'll make sure to let you know, though if you would like to be a bit proactive, you should also keep an eye on THQ Nordic's website.
