Focus Entertainment kauft Leikir Studio

Publisher vergrößert sich erneut

Focus Entertainment hat Leikir Studio, die Entwickler hinter "Metal Slug Tactics" und "Rogue Lords", gekauft. Dies haben die beiden Firmen in einer gemeinsamen Erklärung bekannt gegeben. Der in Paris ansässige Publisher hat im vergangenen Jahr den Namen von Focus Home Interactive zu Focus Entertainment geändert und kurz vor der Neuorientierung bereits das "Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge"-Entwicklerstuido DotEmu gekauft. Die Käufe reihen sich in die Akquisitionen von Deck13, StreumOn und Douze-Dixièmes ein.

Der Deal wurde mit folgender Meldung bekannt gegeben:

“With the acquisition of Leikir Studio, Focus has several new production lines with various art directions – stylized 3D, pixel-art and 2D. After having developed several PC and console titles acclaimed by the press and players, LEIKIR STUDIO is currently working on the game Metal Slug Tactics. Due to release in 2022, the game is a highly promising and anticipated title, based on the legendary license from Japanese publisher SNK. As a partner of Leikir Studio and subsidiary of the Focus Group, Dotemu will be responsible for publishing the game. In addition to its ability to produce quality titles with unique gameplay, Leikir Studio also has significant technical know-how, something its founding President Aurélien Loos has aimed to nurture from the beginning."
