Focus Home acquires Metal Slug Tactics developer Leikir Studio

Leikir will become the fifth development studio under the Focus umbrella.

French publisher Focus Home Interactive has acquired Metal Slug Tactics developer Leikir Studio for an undisclosed fee.

Based in Paris, Leikir Studio will become the fifth development studio under the Focus umbrella and will continue working on Metal Slug Tactics, which is slated to release this year.

Focus Home subsidiary Dotemu, purchased by the company for $45.5 million last year, will be responsible for publishing the game.

Commenting on the deal, Focus president Aurelin Loos said the move validates the company's "multi-production strategy."

The news comes less than a year after Focus raised €70 million to accelerate development and finance acquisitions.
