Prominent game developer and publisher Ubisoft has announced its acquisition of Future Games of London, a developer of mobile games. The development studio was first established in 2009 and has established a strong foothold in the mobile space since then. The developer boasts of more than 100 million downloads for its mobile games and continues to make strong progress in this sector. Ubisoft has been showing aggressive interest in the mobile field in recent years, especially as mobile games become more popular than traditional handheld titles.
Ubisoft builds a stronger presence in the mobile space
Ubisoft is working to establish a stronger presence in the mobile games sector. These games have managed to attract a great deal of support and attention from consumers around the world and have become one of the most lucrative sectors of the game industry as a whole. Ubisoft is only on among many companies that have shown an interest in mobile games for the economic and entertainment prospects they represent.
Developer to gain access to Ubisoft resources
Future Games of London will continue operating as it has done for the past several years for the most part. Through the acquisition, however, the developer will have access to the abundant resources that Ubisoft offers. Ubisoft will also gain access to the developer’s range of mobile games and will be able to market these games and ensure they reach a wider audience. Ubisoft has proven time and again that it holds a strong position in the game industry. Last year, the company generated more than $800 million in profit, more than enough to encourage expansion into the mobile field.
US becomes an attractive market
Backed by Ubisoft’s support, Future Games of London is expected to concentrate on breaking into the U.S. market with new online games developed for mobile devices. The developer will also work on improving its game infrastructure in foreign markets in order to bolster its global network. These plans align well with Ubisoft’s operations.
