THQ Nordic Skipping E3

This year THQ Nordic will be skipping E3 to spend their time watching the FIFA World Cup instead.

If you were looking forward to anything from THQ Nordic this year you’re going to have to wait until after E3 to get something substantial. The crew announced on their website that they’ll need to skip E3 to get in all of the FIFA World Cup matches.

9 a.m. beers are okay, but 7 a.m. beers are a bit too much is what you’ll likely get from their message. Other than that just be prepared to be saddened that you won’t be getting anything new for Darksiders 3, Biomutant, Fade to Silence, Wreckfest or any unannounced game until Gamescom or PAX West. You can read their full statement below.

It is with great regret that we at THQ Nordic must report that we will be unable to miss a single moment of this great sporting event. Therefore, we will be forced to stay in our lovely Viennese beer gardens, blowing the froth off a couple, watching football and one or two cool press conferences on Twitch (looking at you, Devolver) instead of rocking it ourselves.

We have to admit, we are going to miss our 9 AM pint of beer in the „Ye Olde King’s Head“-Pub in Santa Monica, where they show all matches live, but with the World Cup being held in Russia, it would mean a 7 AM beer – that’s too early, even for Austrians, let alone the Swedes.

We are looking forward to presenting all our great upcoming games like Darksiders 3, Biomutant, Fade to Silence or Wreckfest and even some unannounced titles for the first time at gamescom in Cologne, Germany and shortly after at PAX West in Seattle!
