Electronic Arts Acquires Firemint
Publisher adds Flight Control and Real Racing franchise to its impressive portfolio.
If (more like when) there's a Real Racing 3, expect to see Electronic Arts in the credits.
"The Firemint team is remarkable for its critical and commercial success," said Barry Cottle, Executive Vice President and General Manger of EA Interactive. "Having them as part of EAi will accelerate our position as worldwide leader in game development for mobile devices and online gaming platforms."
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed, and it remains to be seen how involved EA will be with future Firemint releases.
Cottle continued, "The added technical expertise of MPP, combined with the creative talent of Firemint and our EAi studio teams, fuels EA's leadership in delivering top selling, high quality games across mobile phones and smartphones, tablets and future digital interactive entertainment platforms."
Firemint emerged as one of the leading App Store developers, and we wish the team luck in its future endeavors.
