THQ Nordic Picks Up Delta Force, F-22, and More From NovaLogic

The company formerly known as Nordic Games is buying more IPs.

THQ Nordic, the company formerly known as Nordic Games, has announced the acquisition of intellectual property and assets from NovaLogic. The publisher is open to ideas about reviving a number of the franchises it just acquired. Those franchises include classic PC sims like Delta Force, Comanche, Joint Operations, Armored Fist, Tachyon: The Fringe, F-22, and F-16.

"NovaLogic pioneered military simulations and military-themed multiplayer shooters with vehicular combat and also clearly targeted at an adult audience," said THQ Nordic business and product development director Reinhard Pollice. "We are extremely satisfied with the new additions to our portfolio, and also very thrilled about how to continue some of said franchises, we are open for talks in this regard if any developer approaches us with a concept for a potential sequel to any IP."

"After 30 years of creating ground breaking Computer and Video Games we are proud to pass the baton to THQ Nordic," said NovaLogic founder and CEO John Garcia. "As individuals, they are enthusiastic gamers and as a company have shown the agility and acumen needed to propel our industry towards a much-needed reset. We are happy to see the franchises we created in such capable hands."

THQ Nordic became the company it is by acquiring old and unused franchises from companies on the struggle. Back in April 2013, Nordic Games made a name for itself by picking up some of the biggest THQ franchises in that company's debt auction, including Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs. ATV, Frontlines, de Blob, Destroy All Humans, Titan Quest, Juiced, Stuntman, Full Spectrum Warrior, Drawn to Life, and Summoner. Two months later, it acquired Desperados and Silver from Atari. A year later, it also acquired the THQ trademark.

The German publisher didn't become THQ Nordic until earlier this year.
