Spectrum Holobyte

Spectrum HoloByte, Inc. was a developer of computer games originally based in Alameda, California. The company was founded in 1983 and was most famous for its simulation games, notably the Falcon line.

In 1993, Spectrum HoloByte acquired MicroProse Software. For the following years, games from both companies were published under their respective brands, but in 1996 all titles were consolidated under the MicroProse brand.

The merged company was acquired by Hasbro Interactive in 1998 and in 1999 what had been Spectrum HoloByte ceased to exist when the development studio in Alameda was closed.
