Nordcurrent expands its portfolio with the Cinemaware catalog

This strategic move aligns seamlessly with the company’s vision to establish its division Nordcurrent Labs as a powerhouse in the PC and console games publishing sector.

With a strong reputation in mobile gaming and an expanding presence in the PC and console market, Nordcurrent is delighted to reveal that it has acquired the iconic collection of games from Cinemaware, previously owned by Starbreeze Entertainment.

CEO Victoria Trofimova commented on the strategic significance of the acquisition, stating,

“Since the inception of our PC games publishing division less than three years ago, we’ve been on a mission to build a robust business unit for PC and console games. Acquiring Cinemaware’s catalog is a crucial step in this journey, providing us with opportunities to enrich our portfolio with well-known titles.”

Known for iconic games from the 80s, such as Defender of the Crown, Wings, The King of Chicago, and S.D.I, Cinemaware’s legendary titles enhance Nordcurrent’s portfolio significantly. Trofimova expressed enthusiasm about the prospects, stating,

“We are proud to add such titles to our portfolio. We are looking into opportunities to remaster those games for PCs and consoles, bringing them to modern audiences and evoking nostalgia among those who played them in the 80s.”

While specifics about remastering plans are still being developed, Trofimova revealed that Defender of the Crown would be the first to undergo the process. “Our game design team is working on the concept and styles, but it is too early to share more about plans and dates.”

The acquisition complements Nordcurrent’s existing lineup, which includes RPG games like Ocean’s Heart, Greedventory, and Red Daze. The company aims to elevate its portfolio with the addition of Cinemaware titles. Trofimova emphasized: “We believe Cinemaware titles are a significant level up for our portfolio.”

Nordcurrent aims to create cross-collaboration and synergy among its existing projects and the newly acquired Cinemaware games, promoting a culture of high-quality gaming experiences. Nordcurrent has not revealed any specific plans or collaborations related to the Cinemaware catalog, but it is open to exploring new opportunities that support its PC/console games publishing division.
