Yes, we do it! The Gothic Remake is going to happen
After unambiguous feedback, THQ Nordic will head into full production on the Gothic Remake

Next step is to set up a Barcelona based studio and head into main production

Barcelona, Spain / Vienna, Austria, February 19th, 2020: Just a little over two months after releasing a playable teaser for the Gothic Remake and asking the players for their feedback, the answer is clear: The fans are up for a new "old" Gothic game and the vast majority (read: 94,8%) was in favour to develop a remake of the iconic German RPG Gothic, originally released in 2001.

Over 180.000 players have played the playable teaser so far. On the evening (CET) of February 16 2020, THQ Nordic took the survey offline, and hereby publicly releases the raw data of the survey, as well as highlight graphs. With more than 43.000 answered surveys and over 9.000 (yes, really!) reviews on Steam and various discussions on all social media platforms, there is enough data to check.

Eager to check for yourself? As we want to start a transparent and open production with the community from the very start of the project, we are happy to offer you the results of our survey in a neat PDF file or - for the people who really want to dig into the raw data - the entire dataset with all 43.111 participants included.

Enjoy and Stay tuned!

My God... It's happening!

Nice. The statistics are neat and all, but they don't cover few if any of the real gripes people (including myself) had with the Teaser, like the hotkey-climbing, limited actions, the intro cinematic, pausing menu with instant heal food...
I hope we keep getting some updates and posts about what lessons have been learned and how you proceed from here once the project starts proper. I remain cautiously optimistic

Great news! I hope that you're going to listen to community's ideas and remake Gothic according to it.
I can't believe the graphs I've reading in this announcement. The majority of people gave every aspect of the game 4s and 5s? Seriously? It's like they just gave good ratings because they wanted a new Gothic and not because the teaser was actually good. I tried to warn people not to do this. Prepare yourselves for something just like this awful teaser. I'm horrified. Everything that the OG fans hated about this teaser is going to stick

@THQ - how about an estimated release date? 2020 or aiming for 2021?

Erhm within a Pluto year cycle, way way way too early to even guess.

They explictly said no to 2020. I'm guessing this won't be ready before late 2022 at the earliest, the press release says they have to establish the studio in Barcelona first.

I may be ahead of the curve.. But still. How do I pre-order a game with bonuses?

Randall I'm aware you do not agree with things, but do not insult other people of the community.

Yes. I am up for a new "old" Gothic game.
I wrote the essentials why Gothic1,2 (2001-2003) is great fun for me, and what my wishes are or what I can look forward to.

Just to be clear I'm not commenting about the game here. I'm commenting about preorders and preorder bonuses. I could have been nicer about it but meh

At least DON'T remove the original games from Steam/GoG.

According to steamspy, the TEASER is owned by half of million of players. If less than 10% managed to complete the teaser... I an pretty sure that if the survey was send after the first combat, the results would be completely different.

Less than 1/4 of the players got the achievement of killing 5 scavengers. Near 2/3 of the players din't got the basic weapon achievement. So there are a lot of players who din't finished the teaser and din't got the survey link https://steamcommunity.com/stats/950670/achievements/

I honestly have like 1000 hours on all Gothic games on steam + GoG, on GoG, G3 is my second most played game, only for G1 i have like 200 hours(steam + gog) and i could't play this teaser for more than about half of a hour. The combat is too slow, clunky, UNimmersive and the controlls are awful for mouse & keyboard. Din't answered the survey since i din't got a link and believe that are a lot of people in the same situation. The motion blur, screen shaking and post processing literally was a pain in the eyes. The cutscenes felt more like a generic consequenceless action game than gothic.


TL;DR - Take the feedback of the many guys who could't finish the teaser.
