Sumo Group (Sackboy) acquires Polish studio PixelAnt Games

Sumo Group, parent company of Sumo Digital, today announced the acquisition of a new studio. For the first time, the group offers itself a continental European studio with PixelAnt Games.

If the name of this studio doesn’t ring a bell, that’s okay. The latter was fwaved in Poland last July by Pawel Rohleder and Adam Lason. Based in Wrocław, the studio was acquired for an unknown sum, but we know that 250,000 pounds have already been paid. By this operation, PixelAnt Games, which currently employs 13 people, becomes the tenth Sumo Digital studio. This acquisition does not call into question the organization chart of the studio, but the full workforce will be tasked with develop Sumo Digital stamped projects. However, it is visibly expected that the studio will expand in the coming months, and eventually develop an original license. Carl Cavers, CEO of Sumo Group, said on this occasion:

Increasing the workforce is a pillar of our growth strategy, and access to new, high-quality talent pools is critical to the successful execution of this strategy. I am really happy that Adam and Pawel can see the benefits of joining the Sumo family. Poland has been on our radar for some time, and the acquisition of PixelAnt, which we know so well, is a great way for us to enter this exciting market.

Sumo Group, whose studios recently worked on Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Crackdown 3, Team Sonic Racing and LittleBigPlanet 3, will soon release Hood: Outlaws & Legends, a multiplayer action game in which two teams will compete to execute the perfect turn. In 2020, the group had acquired Lab42, a British studio, and Pipeworks, located in the United States.
