ZeniMax picks up Machinegames

ZeniMax, the parent company of Bethesda Games, is becoming quite the little powerhouse of game developers. Not only do they own a few prominent developers, but the also recently acquired Shinji Mikami's studio Tango Gameworks a few months ago. Now add to that list one more developer, Machinegames, which is run by veterans from The Chronicles of Riddick developer Starbreeze Studios.

The deal doesn't seem to have been officially officially confirmed, but a previous tweet hinted at it and now Swedish business records are showing that Machinegames has officially filed to change its name to ZeniMax Sweden AB. Furthermore ZeniMax got an infusion of $150 million a month ago for increased growth and acquisitions. I would say buying a game developer falls into that category, wouldn't you?

Now, what do you think we'll get out of ZeniMax Sweden?
