Devolver's announcement includes a recap of the acquisitions the company has
made over the past year in addition to the
high profile purchase
So what does this mean for your sixth favorite game publisher?
This means Devolver Digital will be able to continue to invest into all the
games we’re working on now, partner on new ones that we’ve previously not been
able to consider, and add more of the fine people we love working with into our
cadre of consummate video game professionals.
That last point is an important one - over the past year or so we’ve brought our
longtime partners and friends Croteam (Serious Sam, The Talos Principle), Dodge
Roll (Enter the Gungeon), Nerial (Reigns, Card Shark) and FireFly Studios
(Stronghold series) into the strong but gentle arms of Devolver Digital. Those
developers and our team looked ahead and saw that we’d be working together
forever so we lovingly acquired them, mostly so they would hang out with us
more. The games and experiences that these four studios have planned are
incredible and each maintain their full creative autonomy afforded to them
throughout our relationship. No specific plans for Enter the Gungeon 2 but rest
assured we’ve asked them more than once.
