THQ Nordic has announced that it has acquired the Carmageddon franchise from Stainless Games.
The original Carmageddon is a vehicular combat game developed by Interplay Productions and Sales Curve Interactive and released for PC in 1997. Carmageddon was once owned by Square Enix Europe, but original publisher Stainless Games purchased the rights in 2011.
Stainless ported Carmageddon to iOS and Android in 2013. A series reboot, Carmageddon: Reincarnation, followed with a 2015 PC release after being partially funded via a Kickstarter campaign.
