SEGA Europe has announced the acquisition of Amplitude Studios, the French game developer of the Endless series, a 4X strategy franchise including Endless Legend, Endless Space and Dungeon of the Endless.

SEGA will now publish Endless Space 2 which is due to go into Early Access later this year. It will also take over publishing responsibilities for the back catalogue of Endless games and any future content.

"To have the opportunity to add a studio with the growing reputation of Amplitude's, to the SEGA family, is an exciting one and reinforces SEGA Europe's position as a market leader in publishing high quality PC games," said Jurgen Post, President and COO for SEGA Europe.

"Joining the SEGA family represents the culmination of five years of hard work from myself and Romain and everyone here at Amplitude Studios," said Mathieu Girard, co-founder of Amplitude Studios.

"For the Endless series to be alongside PC franchises with such heritage as Total War and Dawn of War in the SEGA Europe stable puts our games where we feel they deserve to be. We look forward to leveraging SEGA Europe's expertise in the PC market to take the Endless series to the next level."

This is their track record so far. Not a bad studio to buy seeing how all of their games have been well received and sold well. Makes sense for Sega Europe to do this as they have mainly become a publisher of PC strategy games more than anything.

I see that Sega's near legendary status as a PC publisher continues. Their portfolio of games for PC is stellar so far and this sounds like a wise purchase. It also dispels the notion that Sega is broke. They have the cash to outright buy studios. They're not short of money. Good purchase IMO. It's pleasing to see Sega making strides and doing well.
