Saber Interactive purchases studio in Portugal

Studio Saber Interactive acquired a Portuguese developer. It will handle the distribution of two unannounced projects for PC and consoles.

World War Z

The purchased studio was previously known as Bigmoon Entertainment. Under this name, it released turn-based RPG Demons Age, as well as simulators Dakar 18 and Police Simulator: Patrol Duty. The latter got a pretty cold reception on Steam. All others are not exactly hits either.

For Saber Interactive, this purchase marks a new phase of its global expansion. According to the company, Saber Porto (as Bigmoon is now known) gives access to talented developers in a thriving region.

According to Gamesindustry.biz, by the end of next year, Saber Porto may triple its staff. Now there are 40 people on the team.

Saber Interactive are the makers of World War Z, which has sold over 3 million copies since April. Bigmoon Entertainment is not their first acquisition. Last year, they bought one of the Glu Mobile offices. Saber also has studios in St. Petersburg, Madrid and several other cities around the world.
