Doublesix set up as new Catalis division
Burn Zombie Burn dev promoted to sit alongside Kuju and Testronic as digital business pillar
Catalis SE, the group that owns Kuju Entertainment, has announced that it is splitting out its Doublesix studio from the rest of the company to stand alone as a new business division.
The division will continue to work in the digital download and self-publishing sector, following the success of titles including Burn Zombie Burn and South Park's Let's Go Tower Defense Play or PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade respectively.
"It's important for us to separate Kuju's more traditional and core work for hire business from projects that fall into the digital self-published realm," said Kuju CEO Nigel Robbins. "Kuju's three other studios and the imprints under Doublesix Video Games may share a common goal of creating compelling quality games, but the disciplines are somewhat different and the new structure will bring out the best in both divisions."
The move follows a spell of restructuring within the Kuju group of companies, which includes Headstrong, Vatra and Zoe Mode - now reorganised in a single studio in Brighton following the closure of the London office earlier this year.
Doublesix itself is currently working on a "number of digital games" with a mix of original and licensed IP.
