Nordisk has big plans for Supermassive

It’s been a little over a year since Nordisk Games made an initial investment in Supermassive Games and our vision for the future,” said Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive Games.

Samuels added: “During that time, we have found that we share a lot of important values with Mikkel and his team, and we believe these values to be equally important to our existing commercial partners who we will continue to support.

We have an exciting and ambitious growth strategy for Supermassive Games and Nordisk Games ownership only enhances that. I’m hugely excited about where the security offered by this partnership, and continued access to the expertise within Nordisk Games, will take us next“.

What this means for the future of The Quarry and The Dark Pictures Anthology remains to be seen.

The Quarry is published by 2K, however, there have been no reports of a sequel. Whereas The Dark Pictures Anthology is concluding its first season this August with the release of The Devil in Me.

The Dark Pictures series is published by Bandai Namco, so unless a deal has already been put in place for a second season, those rights may now be in the hands of Nordisk Games.
