Back in December, THQ Nordic released a playable teaser for a potential remake of Gothic, their 2001 iconic RPG. Now the survey is closed and the results are in, and thanks to the positive feedback of 94.8% of participants THQ Nordic will soon enter full production on the remake.
"We are up for the challenge to develop a full Gothic Remake which will stay as faithfully as possible to the original experience and transport the atmospheric world of Gothic into a high quality look and carefully modernizing certain gameplay mechanics," said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic.
The first step for THQ Nordic is to establish a new studio in Barcelona, Spain. Following that, the (extensive) results of the survey will be assessed to determine what about the playable teaser garnered the most positive feedback, and what needs some tweaking in order to create a better modern gameplay experience while still holding true to the original Gothic vibe. There's no anticipated release date yet, but whatever it turns out to be it'll be beyond 2020.
