Crytek acquires Black Sea Studios

Developer to remain Bulgaria-based but will now be known as Crytek Black Sea

Crytek has announced that it has acquired Bulgaria-based Black Sea Studios, and will be renaming the Sofia company Crytek Black Sea.

"We think the acquisition of Black Sea Studios is a great opportunity to continue our strategic growth and expansion," said Avni Yerli, managing director of Crytek.

"Black Sea Studios already has a very qualified and experienced development team in place and will be continually expanded in capacity to join our tradition of producing highly innovative and creative games which Crytek is known for."

Black Sea Studios, founded in 2001, was behind the Knights of Honor and WorldShift titles.

"Joining the Crytek family was a logical step for us as we think it is a perfect match. We are confident that our team has the creativity and passion to further contribute in creating innovative and enjoyable games," said Vesselin Handjiev, managing director of Crytek Black Sea.

"We are fascinated about this opportunity and we are looking forward to work in this new exciting environment as Crytek Black Sea."
