Biomutant, an interesting-looking indie starring a bipedal sword-toting fox with a grasshopper companion, has been acquired by publisher THQ Nordic.

Experiment 101, the team behind the celebrated Biomutant, has been snagged up by THQ Nordic along with the rights to the game's IP. The team is made up of ex-Just Cause and Mad Max developers who bring a lot of talent into the fold (as evidenced by this creative, vibrant, and strikingly visual new IP).

"THQ Nordic is announcing today that it has acquired 100% of the shares from Experiment 101 AB, as well as the intellectual property of Biomutant the open-world, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG, which is now part of the THQ Nordic portfolio," the publisher said in a press release.

Biomutant is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC but more info won't drop until 2018.
