THQ Nordic announced in a press release this morning that they won’t be attending E3 2018, as the publishers have chosen to sit this one out to enjoy the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
While THQ Nordic won’t be making a splash at E3 2018, we’ll certainly see them in other gaming events this year, including Gamescom 2018.
Here’s the message from THQ Nordic’s press release:
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!
E3 2018 takes place from June 12 to June 14, 2018. The 2018 FIFA World Cup takes place from June 14 to July 15, 2018.
