Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning gets a surprise Nintendo Switch release date

THQ Nordic has announced that Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will be heading to Switch later this year. Announced and released last year, Re-Reckoning is a remastered version of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a game that seemed to be the starting point for an entirely new RPG franchise before developer 38 Studios went bankrupt in 2012.

Long-awaited Titan Quest 2 may be in the works at THQ Nordic

Titan Quest is one of those old games that has made a resurgence under THQ Nordic. Originally released way back in 2006, Titan Quest quickly became one of the most visible and popular competitors to Diablo 2 (and later Diablo 3) in the action RPG genre. After it received an expansion called Immortal Throne in 2007, things went mostly quiet on the Titan Quest front until THQ Nordic entered the picture in 2016 with the release of Titan Quest: Anniversary Edition, an enhanced re-release of the original game and its sole expansion.

Is a TimeSplitters 2 remake in the works? Don’t hold your breath

Fans of the classic TimeSplitters franchise have no doubt heard the whispers of an incoming TimeSplitters 2 remake. A recent game from THQ Nordic, SpellForce 3: Fallen God, contains an Easter egg reference to such a game, leading some to believe that a TimeSplitters 2 remake is indeed in the works. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems that is not the case and this is just a matter of an Easter egg being an Easter egg.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning release date and new expansion confirmed

Back at the beginning of June, THQ Nordic confirmed that it's remastering Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a game from the Xbox 360 and PS3 era that was the sole title made by 38 Studios. When it made that announcement, THQ Nordic gave us next to nothing in terms of details aside from confirming the title of the remaster - Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning - and confirming that it would include all of Amalur's DLC.

It’s official: Kingdoms of Amalur is being remastered

It’s official: Kingdoms of Amalur is being remastered

Back in 2018, THQ Nordic went on a buying spree and snatched up the rights to several long-dormant franchises. Among its purchases was the rights to the Amalur IP, which only saw one release - Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - before developer 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy and ultimately shut down. At the time it made the purchase, THQ Nordic was silent about its plans for the franchise, but we assumed that we'd at least see a remaster of Kingdoms of Amalur before all was said and done.

In recent months, THQ Nordic has been snatching up a lot of games studios and IP, a spree that continues today with the company's purchase of Warhorse Studios. Though Warhorse has been around since 2011, it's just getting started in a lot of ways, as it only has one released game to its name.

THQ Nordic picks up Kingdoms of Amalur IP as it continues buying spree

It's been a very long time since we've heard the name Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

TimeSplitters 4 could actually happen as THQ Nordic buys franchise

Back in the era of the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube, one of the most popular FPS franchises around was TimeSplitters. We haven't heard from the franchise in a while, mostly because there hasn't been a whole lot to report. The last game in the franchise, TimeSplitters 3: Future Perfect, was released in 2005, and though there have been rumors about TimeSplitters 4 throughout the years, nothing ever materialized.

Titan Quest is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch

The Diablo series has spawned a lot of similar games over the years, and one of the best is unquestionably Titan Quest. In the time between Diablo 2, which released in 2000, and Diablo 3, which didn't arrive until 2012, Titan Quest became one of the most popular ARPGs on the scene. Though Titan Quest is now 11 years old, it's getting something of a second life thanks to a new expansion on PC and a group of new console ports, which were just announced this morning.

Homefront switches hands again: Deep Silver now central developer

The folks at Crytek UK have sold the rights to the gaming franchise Homefront to Deep Silver. This means big things for the series, but suggests the current title "Homefront: The Revolution" may be in flux. We recently saw some (rather impressive looking) trailer work earlier this year on the game - it’d be a darn shame if it never got made.
