Sumo Digital acquires Eve: Valkyrie's CCP Games studio”

Sumo Digital, the United Kingdom developer now working on Crackdown 3 and Dead Island 2, has acquired CCP Games' Newcastle studio, which had previously worked on Eve Online spinoff Eve: Valkyrie.

CCP has now found a buyer in Sumo Digital, which has worked on games such as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Snake Pass, LittleBigPlanet 3, Dead Island 2 and Crackdown 3. Valkyrie developer also announced they would be moving away from VR games, and head back into more traditional PC games.

The 34-person team previously at CCP have transferred over to Sumo Digital, with Owen O'Brien as Studio Director and will remain in Newcastle.

The Newcastle outfit will become Sumo's fourth studio, joining its offices in Sheffield and Nottingham, along with its branch in Pune, India.

In their announcement, Sumo Digital Managing Director Paul Porter had the following to say.

Sumo Digital is now hiring across its Sheffield, Nottingham, Newcastle and Pune studios. As if that weren't enough, they're also now working on Crackdown 3, also first announced in 2014. Sumo Digital is partnered with CCP to bring to life Project Nova, a first-person shooter set in the EVE Online universe.

Sumo Digital and CCP Games are both heading in radically different directions. It's safe to say the relationship fostered between the two while working on this game may have been the catalyst for the sale.
