505 Games is the new owner of the Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons franchise.
Having published the first game in the series in 2013, the company has now acquired the game and its related trademarks and domains for $500k from developer Starbreeze.
“The sale represents our final transition to the digital strategy,” Starbreeze CEO Bo Andersson Klint said. “With Brothers we’ve created a strong and critically acclaimed IP, which we now feel can be best nurtured under a new owner.
“Going forward, we will continue development focused on expansive design, a concept proven with the Payday-franchise. Brothers will continue to generate awe and admiration for the great storytelling standard Josef Fares set under 505 Games watchful eye.”
