It's been a quiet year for Stainless Games, after the release of Carmageddon: Reincarnationin 2015, Carmageddon: Max Damage in 2016 and Carmageddon: Crashers in 2017, you'd have been forgiven for thinking that they would release another title this year.
Well it turns out that THQ Nordic have bought the IP from them, instead. The press release had this to say:
The acquisition itself is being handled by THQ Nordic AB, based in Karlstad, Sweden, and daily operations (sales and distribution, evaluation of sequels & new content etc.) will be done via THQ Nordic GmbH in Vienna, Austria and/or www.handy-games.com GmbH in Giebelstadt, Germany, respectively.
Which suggests that the two PC/console games might be making their way to mobile, much like the original Carmageddon has already. HandyGames are behind mobile ports of other titles such as Titan Quest and This is the Police, although they are also behind the Jagged Alliance: RAGE!
We'll let you know if anything Carmageddon-related is announced.
