Supermassive Games – developer of Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures Anthology – has sold a 30% stake to Danish entertainment multimedia company Nordisk, it’s been announced.

“We are delighted to have Nordisk Games alongside Supermassive for what we are sure will be very exciting times ahead,” said Supermassive Games CEO Pete Samuels. “From the moment Joe and I met with Martin (Walfisz) and Mikkel (Weider), we were convinced that Nordisk would be great partners for us, and we feel privileged to welcome Nordisk Games’ expertise to our Board.

“Our companies share a passion for delivering beautiful games with stories that emotionally engage, and we are very much looking forward to working closely with them and their colleagues at Nordisk Film and Egmont.”

Nordisk Games MD Mikkel Weider said: “What impressed us about the team at Supermassive – beyond their obvious talent and creativity – was their openness to collaboration and their vision for building the best possible narrative games.

“In our opinion, there are few studios better at creating rich, narrative-driven games, built around unique stories and IPs. It’s a great opportunity for us, and we can’t wait to work alongside Pete, Joe, and the whole Supermassive team as they develop more incredible games in their unique style.”

Supermassive is currently partnered with Bandai Namco, the publisher of The Dark Pictures Anthology. Currently planned to have a total of eight games (though that number could increase in the future), two of its entries – Man of Medan and Little Hope – have already released, while the third game, House of Ashesis due out later this year. Currently, there is no firm release date announced for House of Ashes.

Nordisk has a stake in several other studios in the industry. On top of owning Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios, the company has in recent years also invested in the likes of MercurySteam (Metroid: Samus Returns, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow) and Raw Fury (Call of the Sea).
