PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the administrators in charge of Game Group, have confirmed the sale of 333 stores to OpCapita.

All 333 stores remained ope, despite the firm going into administration, and their sale ensures that at least 3,200 staff will keep their jobs.

A small number from head office who were previously made redundant may also be re-employed.

OpCapita is a private investment firm specialising in retail. It has set up a company called Baker Acquisitions to buy the shops.

"We strongly believe there is a place on the high street for a video gaming specialist and Game is the leading brand in a £2.8bn market in the UK," said Henry Jackson, managing partner at OpCapita.

"We have assembled a strong team of experienced industry operators to implement the programme of operational change that is needed."
