Activison set to acquire RedOctane

RedOctane, headed up by former Take Two exec Kelly Sumner (pictured) and boasting Chris Deering as non-exec director, has enjoyed incredible success in the US with Guitar Hero.

"Our acquisition of RedOctane perfectly aligns with Activision's strategy to broaden its portfolio by entering new genres that have strong global appeal," said Ron Doornink, director and strategic advisor at Activision.

RedOctane – publisher of the cult hit Guitar Hero – will continue to be run as an autonomous outfit.
