Kaiko Games Working On New Game Based On A High-Profile THQ Nordic IP
A Hint At Amalur 2?
Kaiko Games is formally known for developing the remasters of THQ Nordic games, including Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning, Darksiders Remastered, etc. The development studio also worked on the Fatesworn expansion for Amalur in late 2021.
Several new job listings on the Kaiko Games website highlight that the studio is now working on a new IP. The studio explicitly stated that they’re working on the Action Adventure genre based on a “high profile” THQ Nordic IP.
The development studio is looking for several developers, including a Senior Level Designer. The studio will require the Level Designer to design and build huge, complicated dungeons and locations. This suggests that the new IP will have plenty of dungeons for the players to explore.
Kaiko Games is hiring for several programming and art-related jobs. That further suggests the studio is already making the team for their upcoming high-profile project. The following message encompasses all of these listings:
We hire for an original game based on a high profile THQ Nordic IP in the Action Adventure genre.
As we mentioned, the studio recently worked on an Amalur expansion. This could mean that the new project may use the Amalur IP, given Keiko’s level of support for the franchise.
While details about the game are scarce at this time, fans of both Kaiko Games and THQ Nordic can expect to learn more about the new project at a later date. Both companies are known for their commitment to delivering top-quality games, so expectations are high for this new project.
