Nordisk Games, a Copenhagen-based business that already owned 30.7 percent of Supermassive Games’ shares, has bought the Guildford-based studio best known for its horror games (Until Dawn, The Dark Pictures Anthology, and The Quarry).
It’s been a little over a year since Nordisk Games made an initial investment in Supermassive Games and our vision for the future. During that time, we have found that we share a lot of important values with Mikkel and his team, and we believe these values to be equally important to our existing commercial partners who we will continue to support. Having had such a positive experience over the past year it wasn’t a difficult decision when Nordisk Games wanted to explore increasing their investment. We have an exciting and ambitious growth strategy for Supermassive Games and Nordisk Games ownership only enhances that.
Mikkel Weider, CEO of Nordisk Games, added
In the year we’ve worked alongside Pete and Joe and the whole Supermassive team, it’s been clear to us the amount of talent, as well as how much potential there is to further develop the kinds of story and narrative-driven games they excel at. In acquiring 100% of the studio we’ll be able to increase our support to the team, and most importantly, continue the great working relationship we have with them.
At this time, the acquisition’s financial details have not been made public. As a refresher, Nordisk Film, a division of the preeminent Nordic media conglomerate Egmont, is the owner of Nordisk Games. Recently, Nordisk Games purchased some additional studios, including MercurySteam and the Avalanche Studios Group.
