Formosa Group Acquires Noiseworks to Expand Sound Design Services
Formosa Group has acquired London-based The Noiseworks Limited in the UK.
The acquisition of the acclaimed audio company reinforces Formosa Interactive’s commitment to meet the end-to-end audio needs of global platform holders, publishers, and developers.
“We are excited for the Noiseworks team to become an integral part of Formosa Interactive,” says Senior Vice President of Formosa Interactive, Paul Lipson. “Their outstanding work and talent are simply undeniable. This acquisition is another step in Formosa Interactive’s commitment to offer worldwide support with unsurpassed service driven by the brightest talent.”
“Byron and I are extremely excited to become a part of the Formosa family, supporting game developers around the world,” says David Philipp. “Our team’s goal has always been to set the quality bar as high as possible, and we couldn’t be prouder to continue this ethos by heading up Formosa Interactive in the UK. We can’t wait to kick off this new adventure together!”
Formosa Interactive services include sound design, cinematic mix, music, voice-over, and engine integration and implementation for developers and publishers of every screen and platform. Noiseworks credits include sound design and music for several high-profile interactive and linear projects.
Noiseworks was incorporated in 2017, and their sound design includes work for game developers, advertising agencies, and film. Electronic Arts, Sony, Microsoft, and Creative Assembly have all used the sound design firm for their gaming projects.
David Philipp, who served as Noiseworks Managing Director and Supervising Sound Designer, has been named Formosa Interactive UK Studio Head. Sound Designer Byron Bullock will assume the title of Creative Director of Formosa Interactive UK, while both will report directly to Paul Lipson.
