Video game publisher, THQ Nordic, has sat on the rights for hundreds of gaming franchises for years.

Now, it appears that the Austria-based publisher is planning on finally cashing in.

In celebration of the brand's 10th anniversary, THQ Nordic is holding a digital showcase on September 17,

According to the announcement, The Game Awards' Geoff Keighly will host the event.

What is perhaps the most interesting part of THQ Nordic's announcement is the final sentence, where it says, "We hope you are ready, kids!"

Many believe that the line is a reference to the theme song of the popular children's cartoon by Nickelodeon, SpongeBob SquarePants.

The song starts with Patchy the Pirate saying "Are you ready, kids?".

If the speculations are right, then a new SpongeBob game might be on the way.

THQ Nordic currently owns the license to make SpongeBob video games after partnering with Nickelodeon back in 2018.

Of course, the only way for anyone to know what THQ Nordic is going to announce is to watch the showcase.

At the moment, THQ Nordic has several games lined up for later in 2021 and beyond.

This includes the next-gen update for Biomutant.
