Following the news of Midgar Studio purchase, Nacon announced the acquisition of Daedalic Entertainment, creators of Deponia and the upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum RPG. The integration into Nacon will allow the studio to grow its development team.
Carsten Fichtelmann, Founder and CEO, and Stephan Harms, COO will continue to run the company with a high degree of autonomy in development and publishing. NACON will support future projects by combining forces through its sales, publishing and marketing teams.
“We knew, through our current collaboration on Gollum, that NACON and Daedalic share the same values and the same objectives to deliver unique experiences to gamers. Therefore, it seemed logical to go further together and we’re extremely happy of this acquisition. It represents a significant step in Nacon’s strategy.” says Alain Falc, Chairman and CEO of NACON.
“After eventful years in which we always came out on top, I feel proud looking back at the past 15 years and the development of the company. Daedalic Entertainment has established itself as a publisher and developer of exceptional games across various genres and on all relevant platforms and has cemented that position globally. Together with Nacon, we are now taking the next step to further develop our catalogue of games created by our own team as well as many incredible indie studios. We are looking back at a trusting and cooperative collaboration on The Lord of the Rings™: Gollum™ and forward to an even brighter future together.” says Carsten Fichtelmann founder and CEO, Daedalic Entertainment.
