The Studio Behind Kingdom Come: Deliverance Has a New Owner
THQ Nordic AB’s subsidiary, Koch Media GmbH, announced on Wednesday that it has acquired Warhorse Studios, the studio behind the 2018 open-world RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
It was also announced on Wednesday that the game has managed to sell over two million copies across the PC, PS4 & Xbox One.
“Becoming part of THQ Nordic family is an important milestone for our studio,” said Warhorse CEO Martin Fryvaldsky. “We began as a small start-up with a handful of employees who were enthusiastic enough to join this challenging project.”
“The skills of our team members, trust and support of our main investor and passion of our fans, who supported development of Kingdom Come: Deliverance through a Kickstarter campaign, helped us grow to an international level,” Fryvaldsky continued. “We believe that backing by THQ Nordic and Koch Media will give us an extra push in our mission to bring exciting games to our customers and extend the frontiers of the gaming industry.”
Klemens Kundratitz, the CEO of Koch Media GmbH, said that he was “delighted” about the acquisition and THQ Nordic AB CEO Lars Wingefors said that he looks “forward to continuing to witness the owners run the studio and drive the creative process for many years.”
