After Gearbox Entertainment’s purchase of Captured Dimensions, it seems that the trend of entertainment companies being bought will extend far beyond 2023. Both firms have a history of collaborating on video game ventures. In addition, the acquisition’s rationale and its long-term implications were laid out in clear goals by the firms’ respective management teams.
Captured Dimensions, a 3D scanning firm, has been around for a while in the film industry. In its 10 years of operation, the company has collaborated with several market heavyweights, including Lionsgate, Electronic Arts, Sony Pictures, and Netflix. Many well-known movies, including the Avatar series, Black Panther, The Joker, and A Wrinkle in Time, have their talents.
However, Gearbox Entertainment is another prominent name in the video game creation sector because of its excellent titles. The list of successful titles is enormous, and it features franchises like Borderlands as well as Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, as well as classics like Duke Nukem 3D. The transaction has been well-received by both firms because of their history of working together.
Captured Dimensions’ creator and current chairman, Jordan Williams, has issued a comment on the purchase. The acquisition, Williams added, would “provide us a fantastic runway for development and potential,” and the firm is looking forward to “offering best-in-class solutions to our customers and future relationships.” He said that the IT firm was thrilled to collaborate with “some of the most outstanding engineers across the globe.” Williams will also likely remain with the business following the purchase and will subordinate to Gearbox director and founder Randy Pitchford.

Chief business manager Sean Haran published a comment for Gearbox Entertainment in which he addressed the purchase. This purchase adds a plethora of expertise into the Gearbox household in numerous crucial areas, and I’m thrilled to have them,” he said of the new employees. Haran also discussed the technical prospects this purchase presents for Gearbox: “This purchase takes fantastic technology into the tent for upcoming projects and allows further extension of services to key partners across many business areas.”
It seems like 2023 is going to be a big year for Gearbox, what with the opening of their new facility in Shanghai and the purchase of Captured Dimensions. The video game sector stands to benefit greatly from Captured Dimensions’ track record of providing cutting-edge 3D technologies. In any case, this is fantastic news for everyone who enjoys the games developed by Gearbox Entertainment since it means the studio has joined forces with another established studio. What these two firms do next to advance the video gaming industry should be fascinating to watch.
