Zoo Publishing Picks Up Empire Slate

Zoo Publishing Picks Up Empire Slate

Empire Interactive may be finished, but the U.K. publisher's slate of video game software will continue on in worldwide distribution.

Deal Or No Deal and Order Up! publisher Zoo Publishing announced today that it signed an exclusive deal with New World IP to license, publish and distribute games that formerly were part of Empire's portfolio.

U.S. firm New World apparently purchased the intellectual property rights from Empire as the company continues to wind down its business, and in turn licensed those rights to Zoo.

Some of the games included in the Zoo publishing deal are Pipe Mania, Big Mutha Truckers, Flatout Ultimate Carnage and Flatout Head On.

Empire Interactive confirmed that it would be shutting down earlier this month, laying off its staff of 49. Six employees remained on board to tie up loose ends, as administrator KPMG handles the shut down.

London-based Empire was founded in 1987. U.S.-based Silverstar Holdings, which Nasdaq recently delisted, acquired the company in 2006 for $9.1 million.
