Team17 has acquired the rights and assets for Golf With Your Friends for £12million ($16.4million USD.) The acquisition should mean some extra DLC on the horizon, as well as a possible sequel: Team17 announced alongside the news that it hopes to "create additional opportunities to extend the life cycle of the existing game" (thanks, GamesIndustry.)

Golf With Your Friends has been around in early access on PC since 2016 but saw a resurgence in popularity last year when it released across a multitude of platforms. The game was developed by Brisbane-based Blacklight Interactive, with Team17 jumping on board to help publish the various releases last year.

Team17 said in their announcement that Golf With Your Friends had doubled its playerbase in the last two years, "achieving success on multiple gaming platforms," and the studio sees "great potential" in the game's future.

"GWYF is the type of IP we believe is right for ownership, it is successful and proven but still at the start of its journey. The team at Blacklight Interactive can be assured that we will take great care of this amazing IP."

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
