Supermassive Games Gets Acquired by Nordisk Games

The makers of The Quarry and Dark Pictures finally has a place to call home.

Supermassive Games has recently been acquired by Nordisk Games.

The popular independent game developer Supermassive Games, makers of The Quarry, has now been fully acquired by Nordisk Games, owned by Nordisk Film. It also owns another studio, Avalanche Studios Group, the makers of Just Cause games. It has also made investment stakes in studios like Star Stable Entertainment, Nitro Games, Flashbulb Games, and MercurySteam.

“It’s been a little over a year since Nordisk Games made an initial investment in Supermassive Games and our vision for the future. During that time, we have found that we share a lot of important values with Mikkel and his team, and we believe these values to be equally important to our existing commercial partners who we will continue to support. Having had such a positive experience over the past year it wasn’t a difficult decision when Nordisk Games wanted to explore increasing their investment. We have an exciting and ambitious growth strategy for Supermassive Games and Nordisk Games ownership only enhances that. I’m hugely excited about where the security offered by this partnership, and continued access to the expertise within Nordisk Games, will take us next,” said Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive Games.

“In the year we’ve worked alongside Pete and Joe and the whole Supermassive team, it’s been clear to us the amount of talent, as well as how much potential there is to further develop the kinds of story and narrative-driven games they excel at,” said Mikkel Weider, CEO of Nordisk Games. “In acquiring 100% of the studio we’ll be able to increase our support to the team, and most importantly, continue the great working relationship we have with them.”
