We learn this morning that the Chinese video game giant NetEase has just acquired the French studio Quantic Dream. A takeover that comes on top of the many changes in the industry in recent years. The amount of the transaction was not specified, but more info should surface in the coming weeks.
NetEase is a technology company founded in 1997. Already owner of four development studios, both in software and games. Their latest acquisition was Grasshopper Manufacture, responsible for Lollipop Chainsaw and the No More Heroes series . The third installment is also announced on Xbox for October 14th.
Quantic Dream for its part is a Parisian studio also founded in 1997. Its titles include hits like Heavy Rain or Detroit: Become Human . Always in a cinematic style and unfortunately never on Xbox consoles. That should change though, with Star Wars Eclipse slated for release in the next few years.
Chinese video game groups are among the biggest players in the industry. Like Tencent, competitor of NetEase, which exceeds in income a certain Activision Blizzard… A new adventure begins for Quantic Dream. Of those which will allow, we hope, to accelerate the projects in progress, and to create ambitious new ones!
