The change of ownership of GSC Game World, known for its popular Cossacks and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game series, was indeed a significant event that attracted public attention around the world. Maxim Krippa, an investor who has already invested in GSC Game World in March 2023, became the company’s new beneficiary. This information was confirmed by Vitaliy Volochai, co-founder of Maincast Studios.

The official confirmation from GSC Game World was provided by community manager Maxim Tkachenko, who stated that the change of the ultimate beneficiary and affiliated companies was officially recorded in the state registers of Ukraine and the Czech Republic at the end of September. The details of the private equity agreement remain under NDA, which does not allow disclosing all the details of this transaction.

The ties between GSC Game World and investor Maxim Krippa are not new, as their cooperation began in 2020, but only now has it become an official change of ownership. It is important to note that the change of ownership will not lead to changes in the company’s management: Sergiy and Yevgeniy Hryhorovych continue to hold their positions, with Yevgeniy in the role of Executive Director.
