Nacon has announced its intention to acquire videogame developer and publisher Daedalic Entertainment in a deal worth €53 million ($60 million).
Already publishing partners for the upcoming title The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, the two companies decided to tighten their collaboration, which will allow Nacom to acquire several intellectual properties. The deal will also see Nacon benefit from Daedalic’s development and publishing expertise.
Carsten Fichtelmann, founder and CEO, and Stephan Harms, COO will continue to run the company with a high degree of autonomy in development and publishing. Nacon will support future projects by combining forces through its sales, publishing, and marketing teams.
