Hello Neighbor developer Dynamic Pixels has been acquired by its publisher tinyBuild, adding another game development studio to its roster of talented professionals.
The exact details of this acquisition have not been publicly revealed in its press release. tinyBuild had recently secured $15 million in Series A funding to continue its growth; part of that money was used to make the acquisition.
tinyBuild won't be resting on its laurels, mind. The fat stacks of cash they're sitting on are going to be used to drive development for more media in the Hello Neighbor universe, one of which is a Hello Neighbor TV show.
While more games are likely, there are other projects in the works, too. Most recently, a Hello Neighbor card game was revealed, based largely on its Secret Neighbor multiplayer spinoff.
The acquisition of the Hello Neighbor developer is sure to make tinyBuild's portfolio stronger, but this isn't the end for them. In fact, they view this as the first step towards bringing even more studios under its umbrella.
What's Next for the Hello Neighbor Developer?
One remaining question is what's next for the developer of Hello Neighbor. Finding an answer to that question, however, is a little difficult.
The last few years have largely been spent on developing Hello Neighbor and its spinoffs. The game has been wildly successful, so it's no surprise that Dynamic Pixels has been focused on that.
That said, tinyBuild has seen a huge increase in popularity for its free-to-play games. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Hello Neighbor make a greater expansion into that space, although only time will tell.
