Electronic Arts has acquired Metalhead Software, adding the Super Mega Baseball developer to its increasingly large portfolio of studios. The acquisition of the Canadian studio is part of EA’s increasing efforts to increase its already momentous catalogue of sporting IPs.
In a press statement, EA noted its intention to work alongside Metalhead Software to further develop and grow the Super Mega Baseball series. In addition, Metalhead will work alongside other teams in the EA Sports division to design and develop new sports titles.
“We’re all players of Super Mega Baseball, and we’ve long admired the work of the Metalhead team,” said EA Sports GM Cam Weber. “It’s a unique and beloved franchise among sports gamers – the balance and depth of gameplay, and the unique style of the content, makes it super fun to play with friends. We look forward to supporting and investing in the team so they can continue to build out more amazing games that delight sports fans around the world.”
