Sumo Grapples with CCP Newcastle

Sumo Digital announces the acquisition of CCP Games' Newcastle studio, or as they put it, they have "taken on" the EVE Valkyrie developer. That makes it sound like they've adopted a stray cat, which may be apt, as CCP recently announced that they were laying off employees at both their Newcastle and Atlanta studios. Here's the news:

Sumo Digital, part of the Sumo Group plc (AIM: SUMO) a leading independent game developer, today announced that it has taken on CCP Games’ Newcastle studio.

34 staff have transferred to Sumo Digital, with Owen O’Brien as Studio Director, and remain in Newcastle. As the fourth studio for the developer – the third in the UK alongside Sheffield and Nottingham – this addition further extends Sumo’s capacity and breadth of experience.

Paul Porter, Managing Director of Sumo Digital said, “As we continue to expand this was a great opportunity to bring an experienced, talented and tight-knit team on board.”

”Sumo Digital is a great home for the team in Newcastle,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP Games. “As we say goodbye to our former colleagues we know that they will do great things there, and we can’t wait to see what they do next.”

Sumo is hiring across its four studios in Sheffield, Nottingham, Newcastle and Pune, India. Current vacancies can be found here: Sumo Digital Careers

I am sure anything related to the CCP IP is staying with CCP.
