It seems that Vienna-based THQ Nordic still hasn’t let up on acquiring new studios under the long list in their portfolio. This time the studio has bought both Goat Simulator Developer Coffee Stain Studios and Wreckfest creator Bugbear Entertainment.
The owner of Saints Row, Dead Island, Metro, and countless other titles has made a blog post on the new acquisitions. Mentioning that the company already had publishing rights for the game, they now have complete ownership of the entire studio for the game now.

Another interesting pickup is Coffee Stain Studios, primarily known for their goofy and ironically glitchy goat-focused game Goat Simulator with a handful of expansions. Another title the studio is known for crafting is the upcoming Deep Rock Galactic that will be coming to Xbox One & Windows 10 next year.
As the publisher continues to expand their array of differing titles to publish in the next few years, it might not be surprising if we see a few more acquisitions in the near future once again.
The next major title on the way from THQ Nordic is the Darksider III, which will be coming later this month for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
