THQ Nordic Will Announce New Installment of Red Faction?

Everything seems to indicate that THQ Nordic is preparing to reveal Red Faction Evolution, a new installment of the popular series of shooters from Volition. We expect the project to be announced at E3 2019.

Last year THQ Nordic reminded players of the franchise by releasing the remaster of Red Faction: Guerrilla.
THE RED FACTION SERIES:
  1. Red Faction (2001)
  2. Red Faction II (2002)
  3. Red Faction: Guerrilla (2009)
  4. Red Faction: Battlegrounds (2011)
  5. Red Faction: Armageddon (2011)

Nvidia has updated the list of games supporting Ansel technology - a tool for taking screenshots. In the American version of the list fans found Red Faction Evolution. The title has not been officially announced, so it's probably the new installment of the series.

We expect that the game will be presented during the E3. A few weeks ago, THQ Nordic, which owns the franchise, announced that it would show two unannounced games at the fair. There was not much concrete at the time. It was only found that both titles are new versions of popular IPs. Red Faction seems like a natural candidate.

The latest installment of the series was the 2011 Red Faction: Armageddon. Last year, however, THQ Nordic reactivate the franchise with the release of Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered, a remastered version of the third installment of the series.

If Red Faction Evolution is actually in development, then THQ Nordic's publishing strategy would be similar to that of Darksiders. In that case, the players were first reminded of the franchise by the release of remasters of the first two installments, after which the devs announced Darksiders III.

We expect that Red Faction Evolution is being developed by Volition, which was responsible for all previous installments of the series. The team was bought out in 2013 by Deep Silver, and the publisher was taken over by THQ Nordic last year.

If you are interested in learning more about this year's E3, please refer to our list of confirmed projects that will be presented during the fair.
