THQ Nordic announces acquisition of Carmageddon IP

Post by Teutonicus »

Dec 3rd 2018, Vienna, Austria and Newport, Isle of Wight, UK.

Today, THQ Nordic AB announced the closing of the acquisition of the Carmageddon intellectual property from Stainless Games Ltd at an undisclosed purchasing price.


“This deal allows Carmageddon to find the home that it deserves”, declared Patrick Buckland, Executive Chairman and Founder of Stainless. “As an independent developer we have invested a huge amount of time and money into the brand since reacquiring it in 2012, but we have never had the resources to maximise its exploitation. It is our intention to work with THQ Nordic moving forwards, allowing Carmageddon to find its rightful place in the video games pantheon.”


“Carmageddon finally crashed its way into our portfolio. Some pedestrians and a couple of members of the Bovinae subfamily might have (virtually) been killed in the process” added Jan Binsmaier, Publishing Director at THQ Nordic. “With over twenty years of franchise history, and yes, I feel a little older just saying this, and such a passionate and dedicated fan-base worldwide, we are confident we hit the right target.”


Buckland added “This is the start of a new chapter in the story of one of the world’s most anarchic game brands”. Binsmaier concluded by observing that “We are proud of every single addition to the franchise catalogue, so it goes without saying that this is the case here, too”.

EDIT: Yeah, so the IP got purchased by THQ Nordiq and looks like Stainless is no longer involved with Carmageddon anymore.

I really don't know what to feel about it. Apathetic would be the right word.

Too many questions up in the air right now and not enough answers, I guess we'll just have to wait and see where this goes. Fingers crossed the website and all its content will continue living on.

Maybe we should spam the forum as almost no one can access it?
