SEGA Europe today announced its complete acquisition of Amplitude Studios, the creators of the Endless series and developers of upcoming Endless Space 2, in order to further boost the PC gaming side of the company.
Amplitude Studios becomes the fourth studio since 2005 to be acquired by SEGA with Sports Interactive, Creative Assembly and Relic Entertainment already part of the SEGA family.
Jurgen Post, President/COO for SEGA Europe Ltd had the following to say:
“To have the opportunity to add a studio with the growing reputation of Amplitude’s, to the SEGA family, is an exciting one and reinforces SEGA Europe’s position as a market leader in publishing high quality PC games. Culturally, Amplitude are a fantastic fit for the business as they not only produce great games, but also have a proven track record in listening to their fans and directly involving them in the ongoing development of their games through their GAMES2GETHER system.”
SEGA will now publish Endless Space 2, which is due to launch on Steam’s Early Access later this year.
