Hell no for MS. THQ Nordic would be a perfect home for telltale.

NecrumOddBoy2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

THQ Nordic is such an odd company. Like are they owned by Elon Musk? They can afford to buy all these properties but 99% of them aren't going anywhere. Just a strange business strategy.

LaWiiG2092d ago

I do find that odd. There is a definite sign of quality vs. quantity, but they also have “some” quality franchises in there.

Razmiran2091d ago

Its not that they are not going anywhere, they are still pretty new. Didnt they reform in 2017?

porkChop2091d ago

THQ Nordic are still fairly small and new. I'm thinking they're building up a stable of studios and IP for next gen.

As for the franchises they've purchased, even the "bad" ones have interesting concepts and good potential for reboots. It'll be interesting to see where they are in 5 years.

rainslacker2091d ago

Outside of a couple less popular ips that tt owns, they don't have much to offer that couldn't just be licensed directly from the company that owns the ip.

This makes tt less valuable than what their potential revenue is, because the bulk of their success and properties resides in things they don't own.

Spurg2092d ago

Ms is perfect...they can afford the license

LaWiiG2092d ago

Snatch’em while they’re cheap. Just adding to the roster of exclusive games. Heck, they need it.

kneon2091d ago

But do they need these types of games? I've only tried a few tt games but they were boring.

did TT do any other types of games?

rainslacker2091d ago

Or they could just get the license without having to buy the company. TT doesn't have much of worth beyond theirs studio name, the wolf among us, and some other ip that I can't remember.

I.guess that they could get a.studio.thats already up and running, but realistically, they already just brought 5 of them.

LaWiiG2092d ago

Would you want new franchises or continuation of the ones they’ve done?

CyberSentinel2091d ago

Both.
More Batman, more Back to the Future, New Deadpool, New Punisher, New Superman, New Avengers, New X-men, New Star Wars, etc....

fonger082091d ago

No for either. You’re really only buying the name, but no original content. Their business model of telling stories (great for the most part) through licensed IPs obviously doesn’t work. All those licenses, Microsoft, Sony, or anyone could work directly with the owner to do a game or game series without Telltale.
