Interceptor Entertainment Acquires Apogee Software
Danish developer Interceptor Entertainment has officially acquired Apogee Software. The announcement has been made, confirming the purchase of the developer for an unknown sum; Apogee Software will be bringing with it 3D Realms, the developer known for Duke Nukem 3D. Interceptor Entertainment is known for its development of the 1994 FPS Rise of the Triad.
CEO of Interceptor Entertainment Frederik Shreiber also confirmed this purchase via twitter on Mar 2, saying,”Yes, we have indeed acquired Apogee/3D Realms. We will be giving an official statement tomorrow.” More information regarding the purchase is still to follow.
Mike Nielsen has been newly appointed CEO of Apogee Software and 3D Realms. A few weeks back, the Interceptor logo made an appearance on a teaser site for the upcoming Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, likely as a lead up to the announcement. Though the game is currently in limbo due to a dispute with Gearbox over rights to the IP. What will come of this particular title, especially with this new acquisition, is yet to be seen.
