The four horsemen of the apocalypse are now under the command of THQ Nordic.
Darksiders developer Gunfire Games has been acquired by THQ Nordic for an undisclosed amount. Gunfire notably contains a large part of the main team of Vigil Games, which launched the franchise with the former THQ in 2010.
THQ Nordic and Gunfire have been buds for a long time. The two men teamed up to take over intellectual property with Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition in 2015, and then again on Darksiders 3. It's not Darksiders Genesis, it's under the control of Airship Syndicate.
Nordic pointed out that Gunfire will retain its independence under the publisher. Gunfire will work on "action-adventure games and online / cooperative experiences" for consoles, PCs and virtual reality.
THQ employees must also be tankers, because Gunfire was not the only acquisition of the publisher. Nordic also acquired the MotoGP developer, Milestone Interactive. The developer currently has five other projects in production, and THQ Nordic considers it a solid choice.
It will double its purchases by € 44.9 million ($ 50.2 million) if Milestone reaches its earnings targets by the end of 2022.
