We are happy to announce that THQ Nordic has acquired the IPs for "Alone in the Dark", a Lovecraftian survival horror game series and "Act of War", a real-time strategy game featuring a story by NYT bestselling author Dale Brown, from Atari.

Alone of the Dark first launched in 1992 on PC and was developed by Infogrames. 2 sequels were developed in 1993 and 1994 before the series went dark in 2001 with The New Nightmare.  The franchise went through another hiatus after the release of 2015 third-person shooter that was critically panned.

Act of War is an RTS that released in 2005 and published by Atari.

THQ Nordic may re-release the games as remakes as they've done with other IPs they've acquired like de Blob.
