EA is continuing its empire to become the biggest game publisher in the world as it has now acquired yet another gaming studio. As announced via a press release, EA has announced that it has acquired “Industrial Toys”.
Industrial Toys is a developer from Pasadena, California and its boss is Alex Seropian who was a former CEO at Bungie Studios and a former executive at Disney Interactive. The developer has mostly made mobile games in the past.
“Creating breakthrough games takes passionate developers and incredible creativity, and each time we’ve worked with the Industrial Toys team, we’ve been inspired by their unique approach,” said Samantha Ryan, SVP and Group GM in EA’s Worldwide Studios group. “We’re thrilled to have them join our studio organization, pursue new ideas together and bring amazing new games to our players.”
The developer currently has only 14 employees so it’s more than likely they will be making yet another mobile game in the near future for EA. EA wants to expand its mobile gaming portfolio as it’s a huge market!
