THQ Nordic will not attend E3 2018, the company announced. Instead, it will stay in Austria and watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
In place of E3 2018, the company will present its upcoming games, including Darksiders III, Biomutant, Fade to Silence, Wreckfest, and even some unannounced titles at Gamescom 2018 in Germany, and shortly after PAX West 2018 in Seattle.

THQ Nordic to swap participation at E3 for the 2018 FIFA World Cup
Vienna, Austria, April 13th 2018 – 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 9:00 a.m. 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 7:00 a.m. 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 III, 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!
