THQ Nordic has announced the establishment of Ashborne Games, its newest studio based in Brno, Czech Republic. It is currently working on a new historical strategy / RPG intellectual property, while simultaneously supporting Comanche in its Early Access phase.
The studio consists of veteran game developers whose portfolios include the Mafia franchise, the ArmA: Armed Assault franchise, Silent Hill: Downpour, Vigor, the UFO trilogy, and more.
“Our focus and passion lie in strategy and RPG games,” said Ashborne Games studio game director Karel Kalis in a press release. “Our goal as a team is to create an authentic gaming experience with sophisticated systems that encourage repeated playthroughs. We believe that’s something that’s really missing on the market.”
