Nordic Games acquires Painkiller publisher with sequel developments in mind
Nordic Games has announced the acquisition of Painkiller publisher DreamCatcher. The label will be separate under the Nordic label, with the aforementioned game part of a relaunch of an “extensive” back catalogue of games. “After the incorporation of the JoWood and The Adventure Company publishing label, DreamCatcher is the third and last to follow for the time being,” commented Nordic Games CEO Lars Wingefors in the press release. “Our approach is to assess the performance of DreamCatcher’s portfolio through back-catalog sales, and as a consequence develop sequels to its bestselling brands and licenses, just as we did with our other two publishing labels.”
The firm is in negotiations with North American companies regarding the distribution and marketing of products. Thanks, Blue.
