Take-Two's 2K Games division has bought Platygobian SL – aka Elite3D – from Valencia, Spain.
The terms of the deal haven't been disclosed, but Elite3D will be forming a second office for developer 31st Union. It will also be creating a 2K Publishing office in the region. Elite3D is a 2D and 3D art studio that has worked on franchises including Diablo, Call of Duty and Hitman
“Elite3d has made a significant impact on our industry by helping many developers and publishers bring their games to life through best-in-class passion and creativity,” 2K president David Ismailer (pictured) said.
“The team’s work style and employee culture are also a great complement to our vision and values. We look forward to seeing our new colleagues contribute to the progress made to date by 31st Union and play a key role in the growth and development of Global Services for our current and future games.”
Elite3D founders Oscar Ferrero and Jose Luis Queral added: “We are immensely proud of building a team that is now at the forefront of our creative expertise while seeing our initial dream become a reality. We believe strongly in 2K’s vision, people, and products, and we can’t wait to take this incredible next step in our collective journey as employees of both 2K and 31st Union.”
31st Union is the new developer that 2K founded in Silicon Valley back in 2019, headed up by Sledgehammer veteran Michael Condrey.
