Vermintide developer Fatshark acquires Stockholm's A Sweet Studio

Swedish studio Fatshark announced today that it has acquired A Sweet Studio for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Stockholm, all of A Sweet Studio’s nine employees have transferred to the Vermintide developer’s offices in the same city. 

The company's existing catalogue of mobile, Facebook and Steam games are now under Fatshark ownership.

A Sweet Studio's team have immediately started work creating future content for Fatshark’s flagship title, Warhammer: Vermintide 2.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are happy to announce that we have acquired A Sweet Studio, that has great experience and will hit the ground running today which is the first day at the Fatshark office,” said Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund (pictured, main).

Former A Sweet Studio CEO and founder Gustav Linde added: “It’s great to be a part of such a successful studio, and be working on a great IP such as Warhammer.”

Vermintide 2 was a success story for Fatshark, selling one million copies within five weeks of launch. Like it's predecessor, Wahlund told us that he intends to run the sequel as a service for as long as it makes sense to do so.
