60 Bulgarian employees will continiue work under the name Creative Assembly Sofia
Ever since Crytek got into financial trouble late last year, the fate of their Bulagarian studio - Crytek Black Sea remained somewhat uncertain as the studio went independent. Now Sega has aquired the team, renamed it and integrated the Sofia based developer into Creative Assembly.
With the addition of Creative Assembly Sofia, the total headcount of the company is now around 500 employees, which is a 37 per cent increase.
"Creative Assembly Sofia will be working exclusively on content for Creative Assembly and will prove an invaluable asset given the multitude of unannounced titles currently in the works. This acquisition represents another step in the right direction for the growth of our global business, underlining our commitment to add value to our existing studios and our continued support for the UK games industry", was announced by Sega Europe.
