Focus Home Interactive Acquires ‘Metal Slug Tactics’ Studio Leiker

Focus Home Interactive has acquired the French developer behind the upcoming Metal Slug Tactics, it has been announced.

Leiker Studio joins the likes of Dotemu (Streets of Rage 4, Windjammers 2), Douze-Dixiémes (Shady Part of Me), Streum On (Space Hulk: Deathwing) and Deck 13, all of which were purchased by Focus Home Interactive over the past two years.

The sum paid for Leiker Studio has not been disclosed.

Leiker is based in Paris and currently comprises around 20 staff. It released Roguelords in September of last year but is perhaps best known for being given the licence to work on SNK’s famous Metal Slug series. Dotemu will be handling publishing duties for Metal Gear Tactics, which is due out sometime this year.

Leiker president and founder Aurélien Loos had this to say about the news:

We are happy to join the Focus Group because it is an important step for the growth of our studio. This acquisition validates our multi-production strategy and will allow us to reach new qualitative and creative heights. This is a great recognition for the work accomplished by our teams over the past several years.

Focus president Christophe Nobileau added:

We are constantly looking for new talents capable of growing and supporting the ambitions of our Group, and Leikir Studio, headed by Aurélien Loos, is a choice acquisition to achieve this objective.
