Notes Established in 1989, Ascon began as a European 16-bit games distributor and then expanded into games publication for the Amiga, Atari ST and PC in 1991/92. In October 1996, the company changed its name to Ascaron Entertainment GmbH.

After the commercial death of the 16-bit computer platforms in the latter part of the 1990s, Ascaron continued to publish/distribute games for the PC and expanded its repertoire to include the consoles (PlayStation, Xbox). In 2002, Ascaron expanded its operations and established Ascaron Entertainment UK Ltd.

The company maintained the status quo for several years until 2009. However, on Tuesday 14th April 2009, Ascaron Entertainment GmbH, Germany, went into voluntary administration at the regional court in Bielefeld, Germany. This was precipitated by a lengthy and unanticipated development period of 4 years for their final release, the action role-playing game SACRED 2: FALLEN ANGEL for PC and the consoles (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360). Ascaron reportedly entered into negotiations with several well-known interested parties for a takeover, but ultimately failed and closed its doors for good.
