Crytek Black Sea has now been acquired by SEGA for Creative Assembly

 
Crytek Black Sea has now been acquired by SEGA for Creative Assembly, becoming Creative Assembly Sofia. This new studio will be working exclusively on content for Creative Assembly, with the studio already working on multiple titles, recently releasing Total War Warhammer and Halo Wars 2. 

 
In the past year, Creative Assembly's headcount has grown by 37%, with the studio now being 500-people strong. Now with the addition of Crytek Black Sea, formerly Black Sea Studios,  the creators of Knights of Honor and Worldshift, Creative Assembly will have even more talent to draw from and new IP opportunities to explore. 

Below is a comment from the president of SEGA Europe, Jurgen Post. 

 

The acquisition of Crytek Black Sea further enhances Sega Europe’s development capabilities and strengthens our ability to output diverse and engaging content for our IP. Creative Assembly Sofia will be working exclusively on content for Creative Assembly and will prove an invaluable asset given the multitude of unannounced titles currently in the works.

This acquisition represents another step in the right direction for the growth of our global business, underlining our commitment to add value to our existing studios and our continued support for the UK games industry.

Right now it is unknown how many different games Creative Assembly is currently working on, though it is known that a Total War Warhammer sequel is in the works alongside a new historical Total War. At this time it is unknown if the studio is currently working on other non-strategy titles like Alien Isolation.

Wow awesome stuff. CA just keeps growing!

I am assuming though that CA wouldn't use cryengine though right? Considering how custom there engine is? Unless they plan on using this new studio for a different IP all together.Quote
