THQ Nordic, the parent company of several well-known game development studios, has confirmed it has nearly 50 unannounced games that it’s working on.

Over the last few years, THQ Nordic has picked up a number of developers, studios and licenses, but the company has stated there’s 80 games under development right now – and we only know what 32 of them are.

In its most-recent financial report THQ dropped some cryptic hints as to what we can expect from its many devs in the future, including an unannounced AAA title from 4A Games, the people behind Metro Exodus.

In the report, THQ writes: “During the period we signed multiple new projects, among them a new development agreement with 4A Games, the developers of the Metro franchise, for their upcoming, still undisclosed, AAA-project. By the end of the quarter, THQ Nordic, Deep Silver and Coffee Stain had 80 games in development, of which 48 titles are currently unannounced.”

Those 48 mystery titles have raised a lot of eyebrows, with lots of people wondering what the heck they could be.

Hopefully, E3 2019 will shed a little light on the curious case.

One of the games that we do know about is Dead Island 2, which was originally revealed back at E3 2014 and was slated for a 2015 release.

When that didn’t end up working out and some big behind-the-scenes shakeups happened, it seemed like Dead Island 2 was dead in the water.

However, it seems that might not be the case.

During a recent financial presentation, the company assured its investors that the zombie game is still in development, though THQ Nordic CEO Lars Wingefors didn’t give away anything more than that.

Hopefully we’ll be seeing something of Dead Island 2 at E3 2019, which is now just a few weeks away from kicking off.
