Focus Home Interactive acquires indie studio Douze Dixièmes

French publisher Focus Home Interactive has bought developer Douze Dixièmes.

The firm is best-known for Shady Part of Me, which launched at the end of 2020, published by Focus Home. The venture was founded back in 2017.

No figure has been placed on the deal.

“It is with great excitement and pride that we join Focus Home Interactive today,” Douze Dixièmes chair and co-founder George Herrmann said.

“Our collaboration on Shady Part of Me convinced us of the expertise of the teams and the great human wealth of Focus. It is full of ideas and with the conviction that we can achieve our vision that we join this growing Group. There is no doubt for Douze Dixièmes that the synergies with the other studios of our new family will bring strength and relevance to our projects, while preserving our quest for engaging visual and narrative experiences."

Focus Home president Christophe Nobileau added: "It is a real pleasure to welcome Douze Dixièmes to the Focus family. The studio has already demonstrated its creative ability with Shady Part of Me, and we are delighted that the Douze Dixièmes team is joining our federation of talents. This acquisition once again demonstrates our ambition to create a strong Group, but also illustrates Focus's desire to support the French video game scene, a major focus of our editorial strategy.”
