Delta Force and 6 other franchises go to THQ Nordic in NovaLogic deal

Some familiar names, but they haven’t published in a while

THQ Nordic
Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

THQ Nordic acquired such memorable — but not recently published — franchises as Delta Force, Comanche and others from NovaLogic, as the rechristened publisher continues to snap up unused properties and trademarks, the company announced Monday.’

The agreement also gives THQ Nordic ownership of series such as Joint Operations, F-22, F-16, Armored Fist and Tachyon. THQ Nordic also gets the NovaLogic trademark.

Of the series mentioned, Delta Force's last game was a budget title on Windows PC in 2009. The other franchises hadn’t published games since 1998 to 2004

“NovaLogic pioneered military simulations and military-themed multiplayer shooters with vehicular combat and also clearly targeted at an adult audience,” Reinhard Pollice, THQ Nordic's director of business development, said in a statement. “We are extremely satisfied with the new additions to our portfolio, and also very thrilled about how to continue some of said franchises, we are open for talks in this regard if any developer approaches us with a concept for a potential sequel to any IP.”

Nordic Games acquired the remaining THQ properties not taken in the 2013 liquidation of the publisher. It rebranded itself as THQ Nordic earlier this year.
