The company Deck13 from Frankfurt, Germany, is today announcing the takeover of Cranberry Productions. Deck13 has many years of experience in videogame development, and is noted in particular for high-quality titles such as the successful Jack Keane series. Cranberry Productions (Black Mirror, Lost Chronicles of Zerzura) was previously under contract to the publisher dtp from Hamburg.

Due to the steady growth, the merging of the renowned Deck13 team with the up-and-coming Cranberry Productions was a logical choice in order to open up new fields. Under the name of Deck13 Hamburg, the newly-formed team will focus on developing videogames for mobile platforms alongside the highly anticipated Lords of the Fallen for next-generation consoles.

“The team from Cranberry will help us to better perceive our diverse possibilities in the games sector,” says Jan Klose, Managing Director and Creative Director of Deck13. “In addition to big productions for the next-generation consoles, we also have a clear vision of our role in the mobile market, which requires an experienced and powerful team. We want to target as many platforms as possible with excellent games.”

“We know our former employees will be in good hands at Deck13 Hamburg,” says Frank Brügmann, CEO of dtp Entertainment. “We wish them and the entire team at Deck13 all the best for the future, and we are convinced that their new collaboration will bring forth many exciting games.”

Overall, Deck13 has a very exciting line-up for the near future: the team is currently working together with publisher CI Games on the role-playing game (RPG) Lords of the Fallen for the next-generation consoles and PC. The videogame is being developed with the specially created high-performance “Fledge” technology, which is also being used for the upcoming iPad title Tiger&Chicken. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with both of these titles and other next-generation developments from Deck13.
