THQ Nordic will acquire Koch Media in a deal worth €121 million ($149.6 million), the publisher announced today.

The deal includes publisher Deep Silver and its three studios: Volition, Dambuster Studios, and Fishlabs.

That means Saints Row and Metro will be reunited with former THQ stablemates Homefront, De Blob, Darksiders, MX vs ATV, Red Faction and Destroy All Humans over at THQ Nordic.

The Dead Island franchise and the Galaxy on Fire developer Fishlabs are also included in the deal, and THQ Nordic will now operate Koch's third-party publishing business and its film business too.

THQ Nordic was previously known as Nordic Games, but changed its name in 2016 after it acquired a number of THQ properties.

The company is owned and operated by Swedish entrepreneur Lars Wingefors, who believes the increased development and publishing capacity that come with the acquisition will make his company a more stable business.

"Koch Media has a long history of profitability despite losses incurred from some less successful game releases," said THQ Nordic CEO Lars Wingefors.

"THQ Nordic is convinced that the development studios of Deep Silver as part of THQ Nordic will successfully deliver at least four ongoing AAA game projects including Metro Exodus as well as the next Volition Studio AAA release and the next Dambuster Studio AAA release, together with a number of other game development and publishing titles."
