THQ Nordic, which released the playable teaser for rethinking Gothic in December 2019 , gave the project a green light.
Especially for the development of the game, they will open a new studio in Barcelona, but the release will definitely not take place in 2020.
More than 180 thousand people played in the teaser, and almost 95% of them said they want to see a full-fledged remake of the 2001 role-playing game.
To make a decision, the publisher studied 43 thousand polls and 9 thousand reviews on Steam.
When the studio starts, it will first study the opinions of the players and choose the main directions of development. One of the key requirements was a darker and less colorful world.
THQ noted that they would turn the first “Gothic” into a quality game with refreshed gameplay mechanics.
