Nordisk Games has announced it has acquired a 30.7% stake in Supermassive Games, the company responsible for The Dark Pictures franchise.
Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, the company has investments in a number of video game developers based in Europe, Avalanche Studios, Raw Fury and MercurySteam. Supermassive Games will now mean the studio has nine companies in its portfolio.
Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive Games, commented:
We are delighted to have Nordisk Games alongside Supermassive for what we are sure will be very exciting times ahead. From the moment Joe and I met with Martin (Walfisz) and Mikkel (Weider), we were convinced that Nordisk would be great partners for us, and we feel privileged to welcome Nordisk Games’ expertise to our Board.
Our companies share a passion for delivering beautiful games with stories that emotionally engage, and we are very much looking forward to working closely with them and their colleagues at Nordisk Film and Egmont.
Supermassive Games is currently working on The Dark Pictures: House of Ashes, which is slated for release in 2021 for consoles and PC.
