The Spanish studio MercurySteam has made a name for itself in the industry thanks to video games such as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Metroid: Samus Returns and although it has gone quiet in recent years, the team continues to work on various projects and the good news is that you will receive a significant boost thanks to an acquisition transaction.
According to a report by Wccftech, 40% of MercurySteam was acquired by Nordisk Games, a subsidiary of Nordisk Film, which has Avalanche Studios, Reto Moto, Flashbulb and indie distributor Raw Fury in its portfolio of studios, among others. Upon confirmation of the acquisition, Nordisk Games’ Martin Walfisz revealed that MercurySteam is working on exciting new projects:
After meeting the founders and team at MercurySteam we immediately recognized their fantastic talent and creativity at work. The studio is undoubtedly one of the premier PC and console game developers in Europe, and we’re very proud of having the company join our portfolio. MercurySteam’s track record speaks for itself, and the games they now have in development are extremely promising and exciting.
Enric Álvarez, CEO and co-founder of MercurySteam, added his thoughts as well:
We warmly welcome Nordisk Games as a new MercurySteam partner. Since the first time we met with them, we were very clear that both parties shared the same DNA, ambition and objectives and we are convinced that we are entering a new era of consolidation and growth for our studio. The saying “The best is yet to come” takes on all its meaning now.
