Most interesting are the three unannounced titles. Previously, THQ Nordic noted it would bring a few surprises to gamescom. Might the currently in development Saints Row will be one of them? There’s no way of knowing, but the unrevealed title scheduled to premiere on August 21st seems particularly compelling, considering it’s labeled as “THQ Nordic’s first grand strategy game.” It raises many questions. Specifically, what kind of strategy game might the publisher have up its sleeve? A city-building sim or perhaps something in the vein of XCOM? All will be known in only a few days.

For those interested in all THQ Nordic will showcase during the event, be sure to tune in to Gamescom: Opening Night Live on August 19th. THQ Nordic represents one of the more than 15 publishers slated to appear in some capacity on the pre-show.
