Focus Home Interactive has succeeded in becoming in recent years one of the most important video game publishers and developers in the industry thanks to its continuous expansion and the take-over of various studios. Continuing this trend, a few minutes ago, the French company has announced the acquisition of Dotemu.
If you are fans of retro-style games, you probably know Dotemu well enough, since the French studio was responsible for bringing us, for example, the incredible Streets of Rage 4.
Focus Home Interactive is delighted to announce the acquisition of @Dotemu, a world leader in retrogaming!
We are happy to welcome such talent to the Focus group and look forward to bringing incredible new titles to life together!
