Painkiller developer bought by giant Austrian publisher

DreamCatcherIt was the 2nd quarter of this year when we first reported that Painkiller is coming to the PSP. Well, it is already November and no word was further heard from this hellish first person shooter. Today, we came across an article saying that its developer DreamCatcher is being acquired JoWooD Productions Software.

We don’t know if this has something to do with the delay or the lack of news. However, something like this should be a good news of some sort especially for DreamCatcher. As the Austria-based JoWooD CEO Albert Seidl puts it: “Acquiring DreamCatcher perfectly aligns with JoWooDÂ’s strategy to deliver high-quality computer and videogames globally. We are looking at DreamCatcher as our North American counterpart and there are numerous and important synergies waiting to be exploited by all of us.”

DreamCatcher on the other hand has a very good track record when it comes to adventure games and the North American market is definitely most profitable. After all these jazz, or so they say, there is still no word for Painkiller. We hope they go back immediately to making games once they’ve all settled down.
