Glu Mobile acquires two game developers

Glu Mobile, which produces ‘social’ mobile games for smartphone and tablet devices, has acquired two leading game developers: Griptonite Games and Blammo Games.

US-based Griptonite Games has previously created games for the Xbox 360, Wii, DS, PSP and iPhone, while the Canadian Blammo Games company recently joined Glu’s partnership program to develop two new titles.

Niccolo de Masi, Chief Executive Officer of Glu, said “We are very pleased to have completed these acquisitions, as they represent an important step in scaling our business and executing our social mobile games strategy. The integration of these acquisitions will approximately double our studio capacity dedicated to freemium titles, as well as add proven casual, freemium DNA to our team. We look forward to the exciting contributions that the Griptonite and Blammo teams will collectively bring to our 2012 social mobile gaming pipeline.”
