Earlier today, the French game developer responsible for Endless Space and Dungeon of the Endless announced it has joined the Sega family.
As Sega acquires Amplitude Studios, the French developer will be able to concentrate on what it does best -making games-, while letting Sega take care of the pressure Amplitude had on sales and marketing. “So we decided to look for the best partner we could to protect us from these distractions so that game development did not become a chore, but remained a passion,” says the post.
For Romain de Waubert de Genlis and Mathieu Girard at Amplitude, there’s two important reasons they’ve joined Sega:
- They are fans of Sega studios Creative Assembly and Relic and their games. “The opportunity to join them is incredible for us, a real dream come true.”
- Because of how Sega handles its studios: “Often, studios are controlled by a central department that dictates what games they should do, and how and when. But SEGA is a company that offers its support to the creators, positioning itself as a service provider, helping studios to reach their goals with only one objective in mind: Quality!”
Amplitude Studios has won two D.I.C.E Awards in 2015 for Dungeon of the Endless, and two Unity Awards for Endless Space in 2013, among others.
Amplitude’s upcoming title, Endless Space 2, will be published by Sega for Windows PCs.
