Devhouse was founded in 2018.

“Our highly skilled team will aid Journey’s Metaverse Studio in scaling up its offerings, and help further support the kind of unique and forward-thinking ideas and experiences that Journey is creating across virtual, physical and digital,” said Jim Welch, founder and CEO of The Devhouse Agency, in a statement. “Our team is immensely proud of the work we’ve accomplished, and we are now thrilled to join Journey, allowing our team to continue, and substantially expand, our ability to create and execute amazing experiences in gaming, Web3 and beyond.”

The Devhouse acquisition is the fourth that Journey has done in the last 10 months.

Founded in January 2022, Journey was formed by the merger of ICRAVE, a physical design firm, Skilled Creative, a voice agency, and Future Intelligence Group, a metaverse consulting and design firm.

Correction: An earlier version of this news report misstated that Devhouse was formed by the merger of ICRAVE, Skilled Creative and Future Intelligence Group. That is incorrect. It was Journey that was formed by the merger.
