Nordic Games, the company that owns the Darksiders franchise, has continued its IP acquisition charge, this time snapping up Atari dormant franchises Desperados and Silver.
Desperados - Wanted Dead or Alive was a 2001 stealth tactical squad RTS set in the Wild West. It was developed by Gothic 4 maker Spellbound, now called Black Forest Games.
Its sequel, Desperados 2 - Cooper's Revenge, was released in 2006. Eurogamer reviewed Desperados 2, awarding it 7/10.
Silver was an Infogrames action RPG released in 1999. A Dreamcast port was released in 2000.
Nordic has created a thread in its forum where people can discuss "how these titles should be moving forward".
Earlier this year Nordic emerged as the surprise owner of Darksiders, Red Faction, the ill-fated uDraw, MX vs. ATV, Destroy All Humans, Summoner and many more franchises following the THQ IP auction. The company bought the lot for just $4.9 million.
