Warhorse Studios, the developer behind medieval simulator Kingdom Come: Deliverance, has been snapped up by publisher-hoovering outfit THQ Nordic.
The deal includes the Kingdom Come IP, although Warhorse will continue to operate independently under THQ Nordic subsidiary, Koch Media. In addition, Warhorse founders Daniel Vavra and Martin Klima, plus CEO Martin Fryvalsky, will remain in place.
'Warhorse Studios is one of the leading independent studios in Europe and I am proud to welcome them to the THQ Nordic group. Kingdom Come: Deliverance, which has now sold over two million copies, has been a great success since the release exactly one year ago. I look forward to continue working with the founders who will continue managing the studio under strong creative freedom for many years to come,' commented THQ Nordic AB CEO, Lars Wingefors.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance launched in February last year on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, although VideoGamer thought it was a bit, well, rubbish.
