THQ Nordic GmbH

Overview

THQ Nordic GmbH is a sister company of Nordic Games Publishing AB. It was initially established on 23rd June 2011 as Nordic Games GmbH and published games through the labels JoWooD, The Adventure Company and THQ following the acquisition of assets and title rights from JoWooD Entertainment AG, and the name and logo of THQ by Nordic Games' parent company Nordic Games Licensing AB in August 16, 2011 and June 12, 2014, respectively.

The company's first release after its founding was ArcaniA: Fall of Setarrif which was already completed under JoWooD in October 2011.

On April 26, 2012, Nordic Games GmbH announced that it had established "a North American presence" and had hired Eric Wuestmann as Sales & Marketing Director for that region. One motivation for this move was to reactivate products from the DreamCatcher Interactive catalog, which it had acquired in 2011.

On 12th August 2016 the company changed its name to THQ Nordic GmbH. On 31st October 2016 the company announced the acquisition of the NovaLogic name and IPs such as Comanche, Delta Force and Joint Operations.
