Like many publishers that came before them, THQ Nordic has recently started expanding quite rapidly, but unlike their competition they have done so by picking up mid-sized studios and long-forgotten IPs. Just this past year they've revived the Darksiders series, acquired Deep Silver and the rights to the Metro and Saints Row games, purchased rights to classic IPs like TimeSplitters and Kingdoms of Amalur, and the list goes on for quite a while.

With that in mind, I'm sure it won't come as too much of a shock to hear that THQ Nordic has now picked up yet another oldschool series - Carmageddon. What exactly they plan to do with it, THQ Nordic has not announced just yet, but I think its safe to say we'll be getting either a remaster or a brand new sequel at some point in the near future.

While it's a bit unfortunate that Darksiders 3 ended up being so mediocre, I do like what THQ Nordic is doing. Instead of blowing a whole bunch of money on one game and hoping for the best, they are developing sequels or remasters for a variety of fan-favorite series that have been pretty much forgotten at this point. So while no individual game is likely to set the world on fire, they will help fill some of the niches other publishers simply don't care about anymore. A win-win situation if you ask me!

Once more information becomes available, or a brand new game announced, I'll make sure to let you know. And just for good measure, allow me to leave you with the trailer for the relatively recent Carmageddon: Max Damage. Enjoy!
