THQ Nordic Acquires Bugbear and Coffee Stain Studios By Andy Mills, 15 Nov 2018 CommentsAfter a year that has involved them picking up Koch Media, TimeSplitters and Second Sight, Kingdoms of Amalur, and more, one would think that THQ Nordic might have been done with acquisitions for the year. That's not the case, however, as THQ Nordic has lived up to the latter half of their name, purchasing Finnish studio Bugbear Entertainment and Swedish developer and publisher Coffee Stain Studios. The deal will see THQ Nordic pick up the intellectual property rights for Bugbear's Wreckfest and Satisfactory, and Coffee Stain's Goat Simulator and Sanctum, as well as publishing rights to Deep Rock Galactic. With these purchases, THQ Nordic continues towards having the AA gaming space all to themselves. Their next major title, Darksiders III, releases on November 27th.Industry News Written by Andy MillsJust one of the fine Newshounds on TrueAchievements.
