The first big E3-like THQ Nordic Showcase was streamed yesterday as part of the company’s 10th anniversary, and the publisher promised six big announcements at the show – including sequels to long-dormant franchises. It delivered interesting titles such as Jagged Alliance 3, but it seems THQ Nordic still has at least 28 games yet to reveal.
The showcase stream revealed Jagged Alliance 3, the leaked Destroy All Humans! 2 remake, strategy sim sequel Superpower 3, MX vs. ATV: Legends, surprise sci-fi sequel Outcast 2: A New Beginning, and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake – a sort-of follow-up to last year’s Battle for Bikini Bottom: Rehydrated.
Six interesting games but fans may have been surprised at some of the franchises that didn’t make an appearance. A new TimeSplitters was confirmed back in May, Dead Island 2 has long been MIA, Darksiders 4 is pretty much certain, and a new Red Faction game called Evolution was leaked last year but hasn’t yet been announced. Even a new Kingdoms of Amalur game might be on the cards – there’s still a new expansion to come this year, after all.
