Disclosure: Crunchyroll is part of Funimation Global Group, a joint venture between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Aniplex.
Some big news for those who play smash hit mobile game Fate/Grand Order this morning, as both Aniplex the game’s global publisher and Delight Works, the game’s developer since 2015 have announced a business transaction where Aniplex will poach the game development group from Delight Works and merge it under the Aniplex corporate umbrella of subsidiary companies.

The acquisition will function by Delight Works spinning off the video game development group into its own business entity with a new name, whereby Aniplex will then turn the new company into a new directly managed subsidiary, moving the active and continuing development of Fate/Grand Order directly under Aniplex. The process is expected to be concluded by Spring 2022 pending shareholder approval, and Delight Works will continue all current non-game development activities and projects.
