THQ Nordic


THQ Nordic, based in Vienna, Austria, with subsidiaries in Europe, South East Asia, Japan and the US, is a global video game publisher and developer.

THQ Nordic is meant to represent a core approach of doing much more than “owning” a highly competitive portfolio of IPs. It revolves around cherishing them, and aligning them with the very best development resources to expand upon them with the level of experience that communities and established fan bases expect and deserve.

THQ Nordic forms Embracer’s 1st Operative Group.
