Makes sense, really. We’re doing the same. Probably for different reasons, though…
THQ Nordic have announced they won’t be attending this years E3. And their reasoning is sound.
In a fun press release sent over today, the company reveal that instead of hauling everything over to the good ol’ US of A in June, they’re instead just going to stay home to watch the World Cup. Fair one.
Instead they’ll be attending PAX West and Gamescom to show off their future titles.
Here’s the fun press release in full.
It is with great regret that we at THQ Nordic must report that we will be unable to miss a single moment of this great sporting event. Therefore, we will be forced to stay in our lovely Viennese beer gardens, blowing the froth off a couple, watching football and one or two cool press conferences on Twitch (looking at you, Devolver) instead of rocking it ourselves.
We have to admit, we are going to miss our 9 AM pint of beer in the „Ye Olde King’s Head“-Pub in Santa Monica, where they show all matches live, but with the World Cup being held in Russia, it would mean a 7 AM beer – that’s too early, even for Austrians, let alone the Swedes.
We are looking forward to presenting all our great upcoming games like Darksiders 3, Biomutant, Fade to Silence or Wreckfest and even some unannounced titles for the first time at gamescom in Cologne, Germany and shortly after at PAX West in Seattle!
