THQ Nordic continues to expand its creative studies and licensing portfolio, this time with the purchase of Piranha Bytes, the veteran German studio responsible among others for the legendary Gothic saga or the latest Risen role-playing series.
Both studies have maintained a close relationship of collaboration over these years, for both parties this new agreement was logical. ” Piranha Bytes is one of the most iconic German studios and are also the creators of the RPG Gothic, Risen or, more recently, ELEX ” has declared one of the top positions of THQ Nordic. ” All three are powerful creative licenses that have proven to be successful, so they will be a great addition to our catalog ”
” We have had a long and successful relationship with THQ Nordic, and we are very excited to join the team, “said Piranha Bytes CEO Michael Ruve, who believes they are” the perfect ally to help Piranha reach a new level. We see unique opportunities to continue developing great, memorable and impressive RPG, now part of the THQ Nordic family.
For now the German team has not shared details about the new project they have embarked on, that could have been presented at the next Gamescom 2019 in the German city of Cologne.
