Piranha Bytes, developers of cult classic RPGs Gothic, Risen, and ELEX have announced their purchase by THQ Nordic. THQ Nordic is an Austrian studio located out of Vienna and was renamed THQ Nordic from Nordic Games in August 2016 after acquiring trademarks and assets from the original THQ company in 2011. There will be no changes of staff or location at the newly acquired studio, and Piranha Bytes will be given full creative control of whatever projects they're working on. There is currently no word on how this will affect any proposed remakes of Gothic or Risen. Be sure to check RPGFan for more industry news.
