Redemption information, and thus financial information, has been around for a long time. Or not. In fact, 2K announced earlier that morning that it had acquired Europe-based studio elite3d and was preparing to expand the global presence of 2K’s 31st Union development studio as well as the company’s Global Services division.
Listen to good people … 2K today announces that PLATYGOBIAN, SL has acquired the company under Elite3d, one of the world’s leading creative studios dedicated to creating 2D and 3D images for the video game industry.
One company or several?
This company, which is obviously of vital importance to 2K given the move in question, is based in Valencia, Europe. The newly acquired team will be renamed in two ways: first, to a second office for the wholly owned developer of 31. Union
That’s not all, as 2K also announces that it has acquired TURIA GAMES, SL in Valencia, a development studio co-owned by the founders of elite3d. Financial terms and the number of jobs associated with this acquisition were not disclosed. Pity…
An unannounced AAA project
Regarding 31st Union, Studio founded and directed by February 2019 Michael Condrey, Veteran of the video game industry, the new Valencia office will complement the headquarters of the studio in San Mateo, California. on the ongoing development of his unannounced and highly anticipated AAA project
