Swedish police raided the office of Starbreeze, the publisher of Overkill’s recent Walking Dead video game, in connection with insider trading allegations.
According to a Swedish news outlet, the authorities seized computers and arrested one employee for alleged insider trading. Starbreeze’s head of IR and Corporate Communications, Ann-Charlotte Svensson released a statement, stressing that the investigation was directed at the single employee and not the company as a whole.
“On Wednesday Swedish Economic Crime Authority has conducted a search query at Starbreeze AB. The company has been informed that this has occurred due to suspicions of insider charges. The company as such is not subject to any suspicion. The company cooperates fully with the Swedish Economic Crime Authority. The event does not affect the company or the ongoing business reconstruction.”
