THQ Nordic Establishes New Studio: Nine Rocks Games

Comprised of former DayZ, Soldier of Fortune 3 and Payback developers, Nine Rocks Games is the latest studio joining the THQ Nordic network.

Based in Bratislava, Slovakia, the brand new development studio will be working under THQ Nordic on an as yet unannounced shooter/survival game.

More information on Nine Rocks Games’ first project will be revealed in time, but we do know that some members of the team worked on games such as DayZ and Soldier of Fortune 3, as well as Conan and Chaser.


“With THQ Nordic as a partner, our roster of talent found perfect conditions to collaborate on our first joint project.” says David Durcak, CEO of Nine Rocks Games. THQ Nordic CEO Klemens Kreuzer adds: “I personally think it is always a great sign in business, when everything just seems to fall into place. The right people at the right time having the right mindset and a meaningful conversation… We are very happy to welcome the Slovak team onboard and are excited about our first project with Nine Rocks Games.”
