Illustration for article titled emDarksiders/em Gets Bought By…Nordic Games? THQs Other Games Sold Off Too

The auctions following the closure of former publisher THQ are over. Homeworld, for example, was bought by Gearbox Software—as we learned earlier today. That's not all, of course. Nordic Games, the publisher behind games like Alan Wake on PC and Painkiller: Resurrection, nabbed a good number of THQ games.


Here's the breakdown according to a press release sent out by THQ:

The $6.55 million sale of the IP assets breaks down as follows:

$4.9 million from Nordic Games Licensing AB, a Swedish-based video games publisher, for Darksiders, Red Faction, MX vs ATV, Other Owned Software (includes Destroy all Humans!, Summoner and more), and Other Licensed Software (includes Marvel Super Hero Squad, Supreme Commander and more);

$1.35 million from Gearbox Software, LLC, a Plano, Tex.-based developer of interactive entertainment, for Homeworld; and

$.3 million from 505 Games Srl, an Italian video game publisher, for Drawn to Life and Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter


505 Games is a publisher behind titles such as Terraria, Cooking Mama and Armored Core.
