Super hyped for the acquisition of Gunfire Games by THQ Nordic. Was hoping this was going to happen after Darksiders III. Still hoping for THQ Nordic to acquire Airship Syndicate and dream acquisition would be 4A Games.

Like Bigben interactive, I think they must be laundering money for some sort of criminal enterprise. Their acquisitions seem to far outweigh their sales.

Dude who owns the company has a lot of money from businesses outside of gaming, hence why they're able to acquire so many studios.

Dead Island 2 is changing developers again??? That game is never going to be released.

Also Volition making a new Saints Row game is probably one of the least surprising things ever considering how hard Agents of Mayhem flopped. The publisher really wants to forget that game ever existed, they even deleted the games social media presence a couple of months back, full scorched earth.
