Resolution Games already has an expansive library of virtual reality (VR) content, most recently revealing its next multiplayer title Ultimechs. But the studio wants to accelerate this growth, announcing this week the acquisition of Zero Index, the Swedish videogame studio that helped port co-op adventure Carly and the Reaperman to Oculus Quest earlier this year.
The acquisition will see Zero Index rebranded as Resolution Tech with a look to expand the current four-member team.
“The Zero Index team has a number of impressive accomplishments under their belt, including their exemplary work that helped us bring Carly and the Reaperman to Oculus Quest earlier this year,” said Tommy Palm, CEO and founder of Resolution Games in a statement. “Demand for great VR and AR experiences is growing at an exponential rate. With more hardware choices than ever in the pipeline from tech’s biggest players, having a team experienced in bringing games to different markets and platforms will help us continue to reach new players everywhere they choose to play.”
In addition to the acquisition has expanded its own team with four new hires. Natalie Mellin is Resolution Games’ new Head of People & Culture, Ebba Waltré has joined as General Counsel to lead the company’s legal strategy around future growth; Johan Gästrin will be heading up the company’s Shared Technology (Fidelity) and Game Production IT as Product Manager, whilst Rickard Åstrand has been appointed as Resolution Games’ Finance Director.
“At Resolution Games, we are craftspeople who live and breathe games and love what we do,” added Palm. “We’ve been very fortunate to bring such incredible talent into the company, all while striving for everyone to be genuinely happy to work at Resolution Games and feel that our output is a direct reflection of the success of this goal. With the continued enthusiasm we’re seeing from players, there’s been no shortage of opportunity to continue our team’s growth, and we are looking forward to doing that in a way that continues along the path toward this goal.”
This continues an exciting month for Resolution Games. As mentioned, Ultimechs was unveiled last week, a futuristic sports experience coming to VR platforms in 2022. The VR Awards also named Demeo VR Game of the Year. As Resolution Games continues to expand, VRFocus will keep you updated.
