SEGA announced today that they have acquired Amplitude Studios, makers of games such as Endless Legend, Endless Space, and Dungeon of the Endless.
SEGA of Europe’s President Jurgen Post had the following to say about the acquisition:
“To have the opportunity to add a studio with the growing reputation of Amplitude’s to the Sega family is an exciting one and reinforces Sega Europe’s position as a market leader in publishing high quality PC games.Culturally, Amplitude are a fantastic fit for the business as they not only produce great games, but also have a proven track record in listening to their fans and directly involving them in the ongoing development of their games through their GAMES2GETHER system.”
This adds another strong strategy-game company to SEGA’s roster of subsidiaries. Amplitude Studios is currently working on Endless Space 2 for PC.
