Devolver Digital became a publicly-traded company today, floating across the pond here in the UK on the London Stock Exchange with a valuation of $950m.
Fitting with the culture of the company, employees of Devolver Digital are still the majority owners, though NetEase and Sony now own eight and five per cent stakes, respectively.
The decision to trade publicly will mean Devolver will remain independent in an industry where the big players are increasingly acquiring studios left and right.
Devolver says the move will allow it to invest in new games and partner (acquire) with studios it was previously unable to consider, as well as increase its staff count.
