THQ Nordic

Net sales in our Vienna based business area THQ Nordic increased 38% to SEK 352 million, largely driven by the release of Darksiders 3. The game has performed within management’s expectations and has recouped all the investments made in development and marketing during the quarter. In 2019, several DLC’s will be released that will give the game a further boost. Darksiders remains one of the Group’s key IP’s.

Great to hear. I love the series and I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

This is good to hear. Hopefully this means Darksiders 4 gets made and is wraps up the franchise neatly. Its a great series, it deserves to see a proper epilogue.

Nice to see a publisher not having ridiculous sales goals for a change, then bitching it made money but not all the money.

Oh look a company that sets realistic expectations and meets them. EA and Activision should take notes. Set the expectations low and hope you exceed them, instead of setting them sky high and getting pissed you fell short.

It’s a great series and deserves to finish telling it’s story so I’m glad it didn’t bomb, even if I didn’t like everything the last 2 games did,
