THQ Nordic has acquired the Carmageddon IP

THQ Nordic today announced that the acquisition of the intellectual property Carmageddon has been finalized with Stainless Games, based in Newport, Isle of Wight, United Kingdom.

The acquisition itself is being handled by THQ Nordic AB, based in Karlstad, Sweden, and daily operations (sales and distribution, evaluation of sequels & new content etc.) will be done via THQ Nordic GmbH.

As you may be already aware, Carmageddon is a vehicular combat video game released for PC in 1997. It was later ported to other platforms, and spawned a series of follow-up titles.

THQ Nordic has not announced whether a new part in this classic combat racing series is currently under development but here is hoping that – if there is a new Carmageddon game – it is better, more spectacular and visually more impressive than Carmageddon Reincarnation.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
