THQ Nordic has released its Financial Reports, and as per usual the publisher is busy overseeing numerous upcoming projects.
The first of these projects is a new Saints Row game being developed by Volition, the team who originally helmed the franchise. This new entry in the open-world gang crime franchise will be the first entry since 2015’s zaney Saints Row: Gat out of Hell..
The long-in-development Dead Rising 2 will also be making a resurgence from the dead, being helmed by Dambuster Studios. Dambuster Studios’ only development credit is for the poorly received Homefront: The Revolution.
The least insightful announcement is that Fishlabs is reportedly working on a new IP alongside several other unannounced projects. It’s entirely possible that at least one of these projects could be announced during gamescom, with THQ Nordic stating that they’ll be having a presence at the event.
Lastly, the TimeSplitters series creator has joined THQ Nordic to help decide future developments for the once beloved time-travelling first-person shooter franchise.
THQ Nordic have also acquired three new studios: Gunfire Games (Darksiders), Milestone Publishing (Moto GP), and Goodbye Kansas Game Invest (indie invest).
