THQ Nordic’s wallet is throwing out money once again as the publisher gathers up the classic Carmageddon IP.

The company announced today that the uber-violent racer was purchased from the UK studio Stainless Games. They did not announce how much they paid for the IP or what their plans for the series are.

Recently, THQ Nordic also purchased racing studio Bugbear Entertainment, the developers behind the fantastic and destructive Wreckfest. If Bugbear manages to get their hands on the Carmageddon series, we might just get a great game in the series for the first time in years.

Originally released back in 1997, the Carmageddon series is renowned for being the ultimate visceral experience of the 90s. Outside of its insatiable thirst for violence, Carmageddon was still a decent game. It hasn’t aged all that well, but it’s still worth a play.

The latest game in the series, Carmageddon: Reincarnated (later re-released as Max Damage) launched back in 2015. It was okay. Let’s hope THQ Nordic manage to bring the series back to its former glory.
