Digital Bros has announced the acquisition of D3 Go!, best known as the publisher of the Puzzle Quest franchise, for an undisclosed amount, in an effort to amplify 505 Games’ F2P efforts.
The move brings the nine-person Puzzle Quest franchise, including Marvel Puzzle Quest, into the 505 fold. All D3 Go! titles will continue to be supported under 505 games, while the current D3 Go! The publishing team will be absorbed by 505 Games’ US office in California.
This is Digital Bros’ eighth acquisition overall, and the company has confirmed a number of F2P projects in development.
“We continue our commitment to F2P”
Clive Robert, Head of F2P at 505 Games, commented: “D3 Go! has done a brilliant job bringing some of Puzzle Quest’s greatest titles to market, and it was only natural for us to welcome them into the 505 Games family, building on our library of IP.
“This acquisition marks the second for us in just two years as we continue our commitment to growing the F2P business unit and bringing gamers the best there is to offer – from original games to powerful licenses, and beyond.”
2022 has proven to be a record time for mobile game M&A, with the completion of Take-Two’s acquisition of Zynga and Miniclip’s plans to acquire Subway Surfer developer SYBO.
