Copenhagen-based Nordisk Games is buying a 30.7% stake in indie developer Supermassive Games. The studio is best known for its BAFTA-winning title Until Dawn and, more recently, The Dark Pictures Anthology.
Founded in 2008, Supermassive Game currently employs over 200 people based in Guildford, UK.
Nordisk Games is owned by entertainment company Nordisk Film, which is a part of Egmont, a leading Nordic media group. Supermassive Games will be the ninth studio that Nordisk Games has invested in. This is also their first investment in a UK studio and only the second outside of the Nordics, as the group looks to invest in more European studios.
”What impressed us about the team at Supermassive - beyond their obvious talent and creativity - was their openness to collaboration and their vision for building the best possible narrative games. In our opinion, there are few studios better at creating rich, narrative-driven games, built around unique stories and IPs.
