Helsinki-based mobile games company Metacore announced on Friday that it has acquired Supercell’s village-building game Everdale, which was discontinued on October 31, 2022. The company didn’t disclose the financial details of the deal, but it said that the acquisition has been completed. 

While it’s not clear yet when Everdale’s Metacore version will be released, the company said it has started ‘’working on the next iteration of Supercell’s cherished IP’’.

Commenting on the deal, Mika Tammenkoski, Co-founder and CEO of Metacore, said: “Supercell is known for its high-quality games, so it goes without saying that we saw a lot of potential in Everdale. From its vivid world and striking scenery to the strong community element fostered by Supercell, there were a lot of the right building blocks in place for a hit game. Now our team is excited by the positive challenge of delving into Everdale’s market-fit and expanding the game’s audience.

Lasse Seppänen, Everdale’s former game lead, said: “We couldn’t be happier to see Metacore take over Everdale, a very dear game to us.Throughout the development, it became clear to us that this game has a lot of potential and amazing and loyal fans, but, unfortunately, in the end, it wasn’t the right game for Supercell.’’

‘’Everdale’s team came up with the idea of finding a new home for the game, and we feel confident in transferring ownership of Everdale to the hands of Metacore’s highly talented team. We have the utmost respect for their game development philosophy and can’t wait to see the next evolution of Everdale.

Johannes Peltola, who has recently joined Metacore, will now lead the development of Everdale.

Meanwhile, the Merge Mansion-maker Metacore also announced that it will launch another title within the next few months.
