We are very proud to deliver unparalleled virtual reality experiences at one of the largest and most-visited retail and entertainment destination in Dubai. This opportunity was made possible by Enterspace operational experience and location-based entertainment vision, Starbreeze VR content pipeline, StarVR’s unique 5K resolution and 210-degree field of view VR headset, Nozon’s PresenZ technology as the next movie format for virtual reality and our great partnership with Acer to provide hardware support. This is an incredible achievement for Enterspace and Starbreeze, as well as an extraordinary event for the VR industry. It’s a true honor to have Enterspace chosen as the leading partner for the new VR centre. With the Enterspace concept we will push VR beyond the imaginable and utilize all our previous investments in this space to a maximum. The VR centre will be our flagship location for Starbreeze VR initiatives together with our esteemed hardware partners Acer and StarVR as well as our content partners
The Enterspace team brings technology and content that is very well suited for entertainment and that also have an educational touch. They have established experience from location based entertainment and provide a concept ready for launch. We see that Enterspace fits our VR ecosystem perfectly and are looking forward to seeing the StarVR Virtual Reality HMD being utilized in their business. We look forward to kick-starting with a centre in Stockholm this fall with more locations to come
System Shock is one of those iconic franchises in the history of games that still gets my blood going and Mr. Spector is one of the founding fathers of the modern action RPG. We're greatly looking forward to bringing System Shock 3 to players world wide in our collaboration with Otherside Entertainment and Warren Spector's team. I'll be first in line to play.
We are thrilled to be partnering with Starbreeze for System Shock 3. They truly get games and gamers, and have been able to translate that understanding into a robust publishing business, and build thriving gaming communities around their franchises.
“Bold plans need the right partners and Content is King. We have worked with Dhruva Interactive for several years and know them well. I am confident that bringing Dhruva into the Starbreeze family will strengthen Starbreeze as a global entertainment company, Dhruva will continue to operate independently under its own brand and run business as usual with existing partners, while greatly contributing to Starbreeze pipeline and adding pronounced value to our publishing services and VR ecosystem.”
“PresenZ technology for multiple virtual reality applications will allow for room scale scanning and virtualization, and high quality computer graphics rendering at almost movie level polygon counts. The technology’s parallax capabilities will greatly complement the high fidelity of the StarVR HMD with its 210-degree field of view,” said Starbreeze CEO Bo Andersson Klint. “The future of VR is undefined but it is easy to imagine with this technology, where a space can be scanned and rendered in high quality CGI, the applications where you could render a space like the Louvre in Paris or Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, and provide interactive guided tours. Additionally, one could potentially use computer graphic assets from a blockbuster Hollywood movie to create a cinematic VR experience.”
I decided to take this opportunity to divest part of my shareholding in order to invest in my business venture Indian Nation in which I aim to leverage my insight into how digitalization can transform traditional entertainment. My remaining shareholding in Starbreeze represent a very large portion of my net worth, which shows my confidence in the company. I look forward to continuing my involvement in Starbreeze for many years to come.
We’re extremely happy to welcome Första AP-fonden as a significant shareholder in Starbreeze and we believe that it will significantly validate the long term value and proposition of the company in years to come, benefitting all shareholders. The strategic value of further institutional shareholding positions Starbreeze for future growth on the market
