Yesterday we reported on Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo's pledge to require games on their platforms to disclose odds of loot boxes, with a number of other games publishers also vowing to do the same, and now THQ Nordic has provided their own commitment to fans on Twitter:

"THQ Nordic GmbH and THQ Nordic Inc. have not made a commitment on loot box odds disclosure, because a.) we have not been asked by @ESAGovAffairs for a statement ahead of their publication, b.) we currently do not have a single game with loot box mechanics published, and c.) we do not plan to implement casino-styled mechanics in our games."

The Entertainment Software Association is referenced here because they were active at the Federal Trade Commission's workshop on loot boxes recently, and the publishers on board already include Blizzard, Activision, EA, and more.
