THQ Nordic has published its Q5 earnings release, revealing that it currently has 48 unannounced games that are under development. As the publisher noted, by the end of the quarter, THQ Nordic, Deep Silver and Coffee Stain had 80 games in development, of which 48 titles are currently unannounced.
Furthermore, THQ Nordic announced that it has signed a new development agreement with 4A Games, the developers of the Metro franchise, for their upcoming, still undisclosed, AAA-project. THQ Nordic did not provide any additional details about this new triple-A game, so it will be interesting to see whether the publisher will officially reveal it at E3 2019.
Speaking of 4A Games, THQ Nordic has also announced that Metro Exodus was the largest game launch so far in the history of the group. As THQ Nordic noted, the game has performed in line with management’s expectations and has recouped all investments in development and marketing. Unfortunately the publisher did not provide any platform-specific sale numbers, however it’s good knowing that Metro Exodus has already covered its development and marketing costs.
Last but not least, THQ Nordic stated that it has a well-positioned pipeline and many marketing activities ahead – including both E3 and Gamescom – that will be important events for the Group as it showcases its games to a global audience.
