    Developed by Polish studio People Can FlyOutriders had a successful run, despite only being released in early April and experiencing multiple server issues on launch day. The game has achieved strong sales recently, although it was free on Xbox Game Pass , and also topped two of the weekly sales charts Steam. Now it looks like the company behind the game has purchased another studio, Phosphor, from Illinois.



    A recent report claims that Phosphor is now a new addition to People Can Fly and indicates that the Outriders company bought the studio much smaller for a mysterious sum. This makes it the seventh location that the PCF now operates, based in Warsaw, Poland.

    Probably best known for the 2011 superhero game Awakened, Phosphor was one of the studios born out of the remnants of Midway, the team that brought the original Mortal Kombat games to the world during the era of console wars in the early 1990s. So while they are relatively small and perhaps not well known, People Can Fly CEO Sebastian Wojciechowski said he was looking forward to working with them, saying the team had "experience and quality".

    The purchase of studios by larger companies is a very common practice in the industry. Last year, Xbox's Phil Spencer said the company would be looking to buy more studios. It may not be clear why PCF bought Phosphor, but it seems the former's CEO obviously sees great talent in the latter, so it could be a beneficial venture for both studios. As of the effective date of this article, the total value of the acquisition has not been disclosed.



    Outriders is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S.
