THQ Nordic acquires Gunfire Games, Goodbye Kansas Game Invest, and Milestone s.r.l.
Timed with the publisher’s Q1 presentation, THQ Nordic closed out the acquisitions for two studios (Gunfire Games and Milestone s.r.l.) and an investment group (Goodbye Kansas Game Invest) involved in video games.
Gunfire Games have worked with THQ Nordic for some time on the Darksiders franchise, and their acquisition gives the publisher a strong presence in the action-RPG market. Milestone s.r.l. is a lesser-known developer active in the racing scene and perhaps best known for MotoGP and RIDE.
Goodbye Kansas Game Invest is an investment company focused on the Nordic games industry, and provides THQ Nordic a minority stake in five development studios: Palindrome Interactive, Fall Damage, Neon Giant, Kavalri, and Framebunker. Perhaps the bigger prize was the royalty rights to THQ Nordic’s upcoming action-RPG game, Biomutant.
