Koch Media has bought Let's Sing developer Voxler

German games firm Koch Media has bought the maker of Let's Sing Voxler.

The Deep Silver parent company – itself owned by Embracer Group – has snapped up the French games studio for an undisclosed amount. Voxler specialises in music and karaoke games, including the Let's Sing IP and, erm, Now That' What I call Sing. CEO Nicolas Delorme (pictured) takes up the role of studio head in the wake of Koch's purchase.

“Joining the Koch Media family is a very important step for our studio," he said.

"Having been managed as an independent studio, built on the enthusiasm of its team members and specialised in music games, we are pleased to bring our experience and knowledge to the company group, with whom we have had a strong business relationship for the last ten years. The combination of our experiences will help us to offer increasingly exciting games for our fans, extending the frontiers of the music genre in the gaming sector."

Koch CEO Dr  Klemens Kundratitz added: “We are delighted to welcome the team from Voxler to the family. After a long relationship in publishing across selected Koch territories, the acquisition is a natural step to further extend and expand our product portfolio in specialised segments of the gaming and entertainment market. I am sure that the combined knowledge of our companies will open new opportunities within the music gaming market and underlines our growth ambitions as global entertainment content provider across all genres, target groups and distribution channels.”

This acquisition isn't the only one that Embracer has made in the last few days. Yesterday, the company revealed it was snapping up Saber Interactive, best known for World War Z and the Nintendo Switch port of CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
