As part of yesterday's THQ auction, Relic Entertainment found new ownership under SEGA. Today, the Japanese publisher officially welcomes the Company of Heroes developer.
Referring to the acquisition of Relic, SEGA is touting the studio as an asset to their name, as well as a "strategic fit" to the company. Established in 1997, Relic is also well known for all the Warhammer 40K titles they've done, like the Dawn of War series and Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. Through them, SEGA is apparently hoping to "reinforce PC game development capabilities" in the US and Europe.
Commenting on Relic, SEGA of America president and CFO John Cheng said:
"We are thrilled to have Relic Entertainment join the SEGA family. The acquisition is a strategic fit and a critical step in growing our business.
"They are a well-respected studio with a reputation for making creative and innovative games and we look forward to seeing what great things we can create together over the coming years.”
Yesterday, hours after the auction ended, Ubisoft and Deep Silver both extended official welcomes to THQ Montreal and Volition, respectively.
