THQ Nordic To Skip E3 2018 To Watch FIFA World Cup

Posted on by Ryan


In just 2 months we will be seeing E3 2018 across our televisions and computers announcing some of the newest and craziest games releasing in the next couple of years. Sadly, one company announced they will be skipping the event for another event.

THQ Nordic announced this morning they will not be attending E3 2018 so they can watch the FIFA World Cup. To make up for this, the company will be attending Gamescom in August and showoff an unannounced title, Darksiders 3, and Biomutant at the event.

The press release states the following:


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.
