THQ Nordic Acquires Metro Exodus, Saints Row Parent Company


Game Informer has word that THQ Nordic has acquired Koch Media.

Quote:
THQ Nordic has acquired Koch Media, the company that owns Saints Row, Dead Island, and Metro Exodus publisher Deep Silver, bringing back former THQ franchises under the same roof.

In the deal, THQ Nordic gets all of Koch/Deep Silver's titles as well as studios Volition (Saints Row/Agents of Mayhem) and Dambuster Studio (Homefront: The Revolution). Koch also owns a European physical games publisher/distributor and a film distributor/co-producer.

The acquisition completes the circle for former THQ titles. When THQ closed and sold off its properties in 2013, Nordic Games not only picked up almost $5 million in THQ games, but also the trademark (changing its name to THQ Nordic in 2016). At the time, Deep Silver bought other THQ IP such as Saints Row (and its developer Volition) and Metro. Now with the purchase of Koch/Deep Silver, THQ Nordic brings all the old THQ properties back together.

Good... maybe we'll see a return to Saints Row, after the incredible disappointment that was Agents of Mayhem...

What?

Where rockstar was mired in doing hommages and trying to be 'realistic' THQ went ahead and said fuck that let's make a fun game. I remember the openings for Saints Row games far more than I remember any of the GTAs that's for damn sure until 5. Not to mention the music. Christ was that shit funny.

It's just too bad they didn't quite keep up going to the next level in 4 or whatever and gat from hell meh. Mechanically from a gun play standpoint the game is weak but in terms of weaponry, abilities and things to do I mean they had a hover jet that converted into a mech with a lazer beam and jericho lock on missiles. That, was fun as hell. AND you could become a super powered human rivaling everything crack down ever did.

That and it was satisfying calling down satellite targets. Couple that with customization only thing the game was missing is technical gameplay mechanics because it really was just a stomp there was no satisfaction in executing opponents etc. something that agents of mayhem tries to grasp but how their system works it's just a poor attempt compared to what other games do where it's satisfying landing a shot, moving in on an enemy and dissembling them to their basic parts.

Hope nobody burned any bridges back during their split and now sit there awaiting some awkward comeback.

saints row 2 was one of the highest quality content packed games I ever played.

Every equal after that was horrible and disappointing.

if they bring saints row back, I hope they do it with the same idea as sainrs row 2.
