THQ Nordic has been bolstering their development capacity as of late, not just buying IPs, but the studios themselves. Last week, they announced the purchase of German Giana Sisters-outfit Black Forest Games, and today they announced the acquisition of Swedish studio Pieces Interactive.
The acquisition only set the publisher back 2.8 million SEK (£270,000), a modest sum, but then again no big IP came as part of the purchase. Pieces Interactive employs 13 game developers and works out of Skövde in Sweden, a region that has a bustling game development scene as highlighted by Goat Simulator and Battlerite. Pieces Interactive becomes the sixth fully owned studio under THQ Nordic's umbrella.
