Zoo Publishing snatches up rights to Empire Interactive IPs


New York-based Zoo Publishing has purchased the rights to games previously owned by UK publisher Empire Interactive.

The company now holds the rights to create, distribute, license, port, publish and re-release Empire titles under an agreement with New World IP.

"I am incredibly excited about the prospects of remaking some of the Empire IP, bringing others online, and generating revenue from the current titles," said Zoo CEO Mark Seremet. "Empire distributed my first company's software in the EU back in the 1980s and while I'm sad to see this economic environment take its toll on Empire, I'm grateful for the opportunity to partner with New World IP to continue the company's franchises."

Empire went into administration last week, and it's intellectual properties were sold to New World.
