Arkane Studios acquired by Zenimax

Zenimax Media have gobbled up Arkane Studios.

Taking the stage at QuakeCon, Bethesda Softworks’ Pete Hines revealed that Zenimax have added the French developers to their growing portfolio of studios.

Not the most prolific of devs, Arkane Studios most recently helped out 2K Marin with BioShock 2, contributing design, animation and art to the underwater sequel. They are perhaps best known, however, for Arx Fatalis and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.

According to Arkane’s Raphael Colantonio, the developers are currently working on an unannounced project. We don’t know anything about it yet. Because it’s unannounced.

Arkane Studios now join id Software, Bethesda Softworks, Vir2L and Mud Duck Productions under the increasingly large Zenimax Media umbrella.
