Interceptor Entertainment buys 3D Realms


#1

Interceptor Entertainment, makers of the Rise of Triad 2013 remake, now owns 3D Realms through their investment firm called SDN Invest. Interceptor CEO Frederik Schreiber announced the purchase of 3D Realms and Apogee Software Ltd on March 2nd. (It should be noted that Interceptor does not own Apogee Software LLC which owns the rights to the original Rise of the Triad.) Mike Nielson, who already served as Chairman of the Board at Interceptor will be the new CEO of 3D Realms. The new roles for 3D Realms officers Scott Miller and George Broussard have not been disclosed at this time, but Nielson says the majority of actual game production will be done through Interceptor, while 3D Realms will maintain a publishing role.
