THQ Nordic AB Acquires “This is the Police” from Weappy LLC.

Karlstad (Sweden), Minsk (Belarus), December 30: Today, THQ Nordic announced that an asset purchase agreement with Weappy LLC has been closed and “This is the Police” is now part of THQ Nordic’s growing IP portfolio.

Lars Wingefors, founder and Group CEO, comments:

“We are happy to report, that “This is the Police” can now be accounted to our owned IP- and franchise portfolio. Before signing off the asset purchase agreement with Weappy LLC, THQ Nordic functioned as publisher only. In strong cooperation with our friends from Weappy LLC we are working on bringing this exceptional title to current gen consoles and mobile devices which are due for release in 2017.”

“This is the Police” is a strategy adventure in a dark but realistic world, which revolves around the gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd with whom you will dive into a deep story of crime and intrigue. The game was released for PC, MAC and Linux on August 2, 2016 and has since then sold more than 165,000 copies.
