Nordisk Games acquires 30% stake in Supermassive

Nordisk Games has acquired a minority ownership share in Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games.

Nordisk, which already owns Avalanche Studios and 40% of MercurySteam among others, will hold a 30.7% ownership in the studio. The amount of the investment has not been disclosed.

Supermassive currently employs over 200 staff and is based in Guildford, UK. It’s currently working on The Dark Pictures Anthology, a collection of standalone horror games which has released two entries so far: 2019’s Man of Medan and 2020’s Little Hope. A third title, House of Ashes, is due to launch this year.

The studio will be the ninth games company joining Nordisk’s portfolio, and the first one in the UK.
