Phoenix Games was established in May 2019 with the mission to build a family of the world’s most talented games companies. Adding a developer with the experience of Promotion Software / Sixteen Tons is a boon for everyone involved in the group, with the studio joining Well Played Games ahead of further acquisitions due to be announced soon.
“Anyone in the games industry, particularly those in Germany, should be familiar with Ralph Stock’s incredible track record,” said Phoenix Games CEO Klaas Kersting. “To maintain such a high quality of output for so many years, in such a cutthroat industry, is no accident and speaks to his talent and commitment. We are beyond thrilled to welcome him and his teams into the Phoenix family and be given the chance to play our part in their next chapter.”
“My games companies are accompanying me for a really long time now, I have been growing them for more than 25 years – to join the Phoenix Games family is not a question of money, it is a question of trust,” said Ralph Stock, owner and CEO of Promotion Software and Sixteen Tons Entertainment. “I greatly admire what Klaas Kersting is building and am proud to be part of the Phoenix Games group from now on.”
