Kingdom Come: Deliverance didn't quite get to splash as many waves as people had been hoping it would, but it was quite a lovely medieval RPG still. The developers, Warhorse Studios, originally published the game with the help of Deep Silver, but are now taking up a publisher proper.
The latest development is that THQ Nordic acquired Kingdom Come developer, which is not odd considering their relationship with Deep Silver. The transaction was made public just a few hours ago, announcing that Warhorse will keep working as an independent studio under Koch Media.
Most of us will know by now that THQ Nordic is very much interested in establishing a strong and varied portfolio, with much of its subsidiaries having been related in some way, shape, or form to THQ of old. THQ Nordic acquired Deep Silver last year, and it was to be expected that they would move on to companies who worked with Deep Silver, in due time.
Warhorse Studios worked with Deep Silver (i.e. Koch) to get Kingdom Come: Deliverance out of the gate, and now THQ Nordic have announced that they've acquired this studio, too, in full, for €33.2 million.
Since Warhorse has a history with Koch Media through Deep Silver, and THQ Nordic, and THQ Nordic seems quite pleased with the way they've handled Kingdom Come: Deliverance, the company moved to acquire 100% of the shares, though they intend for the developer to keep operating as an independent studio under their wing.
