Founded in 1998, Starbreeze is a global computer and video game company whose vision is to be a leading provider in the entertainment industry by creating world-class experiences. With studios in Stockholm, Paris, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Brussels and India, Starbreeze develops high-quality entertainment products based on proprietary and third-party rights, both in-house and in partnership with external game developers.

“The switch to Nasdaq Stockholm is an important milestone for Starbreeze and the result of a goal-oriented effort,” said Bo Klint Andersson, CEO of Starbreeze. “Starbreeze has had an amazing journey since 2014 when we were listed on First North Premier. Having previously operated only as a game developer working with external game publishers, we now own our internal product development and run a successful publishing business with externally developed games to broaden our portfolio. We’ve also expanded the business ventures in the Virtual Reality (VR) segment including the development of the StarVR head mounted display and by taking a stake in the location based VR market. Starbreeze is well-positioned for continued development towards becoming a leading provider of world-class experiences in the global entertainment industry.”
“We welcome Starbreeze to the Nasdaq Stockholm main market,” said Adam Kostyál, SVP and Head of European listings at Nasdaq. “We are excited to see yet another company grow and transfer from Nasdaq First North Premier to the main market, and we look forward to supporting Starbreeze for many more years to come.”
