Here's what happened during the THQ Nordic Anniversary Live Stream

In what was an under-the-radar event, THQ Nordic held a 10th Anniversary Live Stream to reveal what's next for the popular publisher.

They've made some big promises about the event and unfortunately some leaker prior to the show! Here's everything we know and some announcements we want to see from the event...

LATEST - Announcements from the show

The show kicked off with an trailer for Elex 2 followed by the confirmation that Destroy All Humans 2: Reprobed will release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. No release date was given.

We then moved onto the reveal of Outcast 2 which signals the franchise's return after a 22-year hiatus. After this came the reveal of Expeditions of Rome, a turn-based action RPG.

One for the high adrenaline crowd next as MX vs ATX Legends was announced alongside Super Power 3 a civilation style game.

Another huge return as Jagged Alliance 3 was then announced as the first mainline game in over two decades. Finally, to close out the show, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake was announced although it was hard to tell too much about the game based on the reveal trailer.

Geoff Keighley will be hosting the stream because apparently, he hosts any and everything gaming-related these days. However, his presence could be a sign that this isn't some small market stream with minor announcements.

What to Expect

One possible reveal has already been leaked in the form of Destroy All Humans 2: Reprobed. Following on from the successful remaster of the original, we'd be excited to jump back into the sequel on modern-day consoles.

Some sneaky teases from THQ have suggested that games fans have been waiting 'decades' for are set to return. This has lead to speculation that Timesplitters is about to make a comeback. If we're honest, we don't care if it's a new game or a remake, any Timesplitters will do for us. The second game in the franchise has just turned 20 years old too!

When looking at the rest of the possibilities, it seems likely that a new Darksiders project could be shown too. This franchise has been part of THQ Nordic's rise over the last decade. Whether it's the fourth mainline game or another spin-off, it should be present at some point during the showcase.
