Nightingale

Inflexion Games, the developer behind upcoming Victorian-styled survival game Nightingale, is under new ownership -- and it's exactly who you'd expect to be buying up a game company.

Inflexion's previous owner, Improbable, has announced the sale of the Edmonton-based studio to Tencent, adding Nightingale "to the line-up of upcoming games from Tencent’s global gaming brand, Level Infinite." Former BioWare developer Aaryn Flynn will remain on board as CEO.

Improbable CEO Herman Narula said that "while we focus our efforts on accelerating in the metaverse, we want to make sure that the games developed by our internal studios benefit from the support of publishers with leading track records of bringing games to market." He said that he looked forward to "continued collaboration" with the Inflexion team, which would seem to indicate that Nightingale isn't going to be switching from the Improbable Engine.

An early access launch for Nightingale on PC is still scheduled for later this year, Flynn said. You can sign up for more information and news on the game's website.
