THQ Nordic today entered into an agreement to acquire Warhorse Studios, the studio behind Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
This acquisition includes the development studio and all IP rights. It is also a natural result of the previous successful cooperation between Koch Media and Warhorse Studios.

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. 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.” [/testimonials]
