Majesco Leaves the Game Industry … to Work in Medical Tech

Majesco Entertainment, the New Jersey-based publisher known for putting out games like BloodRayne (and its sequel), and Psychonauts, is no longer operating as a games publisher.

The company has merged with PolarityTE, a company developing tissue regeneration technology, in a bid to completely focus on biotechnology.

While Majesco will see Polarity become a “wholly-owned subsidiary,” Majesco will operate under the Polarity name following the merger. Further confusing things is the fact that Polarity will retain Majesco’s stock symbol on the Nasdaq exchange.

Majesco was founded back in 1986 in Edison, New Jersey and saw a multitude of titles released under their company throughout the years. Sega even licensed the Genesis name to Majesco, after which the company actually produced Genesis reproductions in the United States, known as the Genesis 3.

The company’s last published games include an HD port of A Boy and His Blob, as well as the console port of Fullbright’s Gone Home.
