THQ Nordic Acquires The Outcast IP

by Rainier on Jan. 10, 2019 @ 8:41 a.m. PST

THQ Nordic announced that the acquisition of the intellectual property “Outcast” has been finalized with the three original creators of the game.

Outcast is an action-adventure video game originally developed by Belgian developer Appeal and was first released by Infogrames for PC in 1999.

Since 2015, the original creators of the game have revived Appeal Studios, to work on remasters, remakes and new games based on the Outcast universe.

Outcast puts you in the role of Cutter Slade, a former U.S. Navy SEAL, and right in the middle of the alien world of Adelpha. After a couple of things went South with a probe sent to a parallel universe, Cutter is given the job to escort 3 scientists, close the black hole and safely get everyone back to Earth. So one cakewalk of a job and he blew it...

Damn it, Cutter…

The acquisition itself is being handled by THQ Nordic AB, based in Karlstad, Sweden, and daily operations (sales and distribution, evaluation of sequels & new content etc.) will be done via THQ Nordic GmbH in Vienna, Austria.
