THQ Nordic now own Koch Media GmbH

By - | Views: 9,940

Not that it really means all that much for us, but interesting nonetheless, THQ Nordic has acquired Koch Media GmbH.

Naturally, the announcements contain a lot of legal-speak, but some of it is quite interesting. THQ Nordic have actually put out a few Linux games like the revamp of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, the updated Imperium Galactica II and the RPG Silver. They're also the publisher of games that support Linux like The Book of Unwritten Tales, This Is the Police, The Dwarves and a bunch more.

This also means that THQ Nordic also now own Deep Silver, so they now gain Dead Island, Metro, Saints Row, Risen, Homefront and plenty more with that too.

Hopefully THQ Nordic will remain somewhat Linux friendly, since they now essentially control some pretty big names it will be interesting to see if they push for any more games on Linux.

You can see the announcement on the Koch Media site here, with more info here as well.

What do you think to this?

Thanks for the tip, micha!

I like THQ Nordic because they aren't DRM Lovers like other publishers; they are DRMFREE friendly with big AAA releases..
