Zoo Games picks up Empire IP

New York-based Zoo Games has acquired the rights to Empire Interactive’s IP, including Flatout and Big Mutha Truckers, following the UK publisher’s fall into administration earlier this week.

Zoo Publishing – a subsidiary of Zoo Games, and unrelated to fellow games companies Zushi Games and Zoo Digital – agreed a partnership with mysterious new company New World IP to attain the rights to the licences.

New World IP initially purchased Empire’s licences from administrator KPMG.

MCV asked the CEO of Empire parent Silverstar Holdings, Clive Kabatznik, for details of the company. However, he told us: “It’s absolutely unequivocally not owned by or related to me in any way.”
