In two months, the E3 2018 will take place in Los Angeles. However, the publisher THQ Nordic has decided to skip the E3 in order to fully concentrate on the World Cup.
Currently, THQ Nordic has some hot iron in the fire with games like “Darksiders 3”, “Biomutant”, “Fade to Silence” or “Wreckfest”. However, the publisher announced today that they will not introduce these games at E3. Rather, priorities have been set and the company’s entire E3 presence has been canceled. According to his own statement prefers to prefer the football World Cup.
“With a heavy heart, we hereby announce that we at THQ Nordic do not want to miss a second of this great sporting event and therefore” forced “to stay in our beautiful Viennese beer gardens One or the other cool press conference (Devolver, we count on you!) Of course we will look at each other, “says the official statement. “We’ll admit that we will miss the morning beer at the Ye Olde King’s Head Pub in Santa Monica, where all the games are broadcast live – but since the World Cup is in Russia, that would mean a beer at 7am, and that is too early even for Austrians, not to mention the Swedes. ”
THQ Nordic will present its latest games as well as unannounced titles for the first time at Gamescom in Cologne and at PAX West in Seattle. Whether you will at least reveal new information about the games until then, was left open so far.
