It looks like THQ Nordic are turning into the Disney of video games as the company has been acquiring several IP’s to their library. Today the company announced that they grabbed two older IP’s away from Atari Games to add to their collection in the form of Act of War and Alone in the Dark. The announcement was made over Twitter earlier today.
We are happy to announce that THQ Nordic has acquired the IPs for “Alone in the Dark”, a Lovecraftian survival horror game series and “Act of War”, a real-time strategy game featuring a story by NYT bestselling author Dale Brown, from Atari. pic.twitter.com/tmjpdI7HjO

Like a lot of their acquisitions, the company made no official announcement about plans to do anything with either of them yet. However, THQ Nordic has been building up quite the library over the past calendar year. Hopefully, the next time we visit PAX East or E3, the company will have plans for some of these properties.
