If you thought all of THQ's assets had been sold off by now, think again. Nordic Games today announced that it has purchased the IP rights to the de Blob
While the majority of THQ's assets were bought up
last year after the company went bankrupt, the de Blob
IP was left behind. Now Nordic has decided that it's the right time to pick it up.
"It was in one of the lots, but we did not acquire entire lots," Nordic's Philipp Brock tells Gamasutra. "Rather some titles which were in our focus. One year ago, de Blob
was not one of them (Darksiders, MX vs. ATV, Red Faction, Titan Quest
were priority titles for us back then)."
He adds, "Time has passed and the conditions were right, so de Blob
found a new home today."
Nordic recently acquired the rights to use the THQ trademark
when publishing games, allowing the company to publish games under the THQ name.
