THQ Nordic has announced the developer that will be handling the Gothic remake.
Previously, the company stated the Gothic remake would be handled by a new studio in Barcelona, Spain that was being established. That developer is Alkimia Interactive.
After the project was greenlit, the next step was to fully set up a studio subsidiary. So in summer 20202, the studio started operations and began bringing together a team, which is “constantly growing” and is still looking for developers to join.
The team’s focus and ambition is to build high-quality RPGs, with its first project being the full development of the remake for PC and next-gen consoles. Development is well underway and more on the game will be revealed in the next couple of months.
“We strive to build Alkimia Interactive as a top-notch RPG studio”, said Reinhard Pollice, studio head at Alkimia Interactive. “Our ambition is to become one of the best addresses for PC/Console core game development in the South of Europe.”
In December 2019, THQ Nordic released a playable Gothic remake prototype asking for public opinion on a possible modern remake of the classic RPG.
The playable teaser appeared in the Steam Library of everyone who owned a game from Piranha Bytes.
