Sumo Group acquires The Chinese Room

Sumo Digital adds another development team to portfolio

Posted on

Sumo Group has announced that it has acquired The Chinese Room from founders Dan Pinchbeck and Jessica Curry.

The Chinese Room is best known for creating games ‘Dear Esther’, ‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’, ‘Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture’ and Google Daydream exclusive ‘So Let Us Melt’. Dan will take the role of Creative Director of The Chinese Room, while Jessica will continue her career independently as a composer.

Sumo Group intends to invest in The Chinese Room and continue development of current projects by building its team and collaborating with other Sumo Digital studios.

This acquisition follows the addition of the studio in Newcastle, formerly CCP Games, in January this year, and the Nottingham studio that opened in 2016.

Sumo Group plc, which floated on AIM in December 2017, is one of the UK’s largest providers of creative and development services to the video games and entertainment industries. The Group has two operating businesses, employing 483 people, and studios in Sheffield, Nottingham, Newcastle, Pune (India) and Vancouver (Canada).
