Casual and casino publisher, GSN Games, has announced its acquisition of mobile games and back-end service developer, Gamedonia. Based in Barcelona, Spain, Gamedonia will be rebranded as GSN Games Barcelona and its staff will be integrated into the GSN team.
Under the terms of the agreement, existing Gamedonia customers will continue to have access to the backend service “for the foreseeable future”, but new customers will no longer be able to sign up.
The Gamedonia team has already begun to work with the GSN Games India team on integration.
“GSN Games’ acquisition of Gamedonia aligns with our strategy of leveraging talented teams and advanced technologies to create best-in-class games that delight millions of players worldwide,” announced Steve Brunell, COO of GSN Games. “We are pleased to welcome the Gamedonia team and already are on our way to integrating their expertise in order to power rapid game development across the GSN Games organisation.”
David Xicota, the chief executive and founder of Gamedonia will hold the position of studio director of the rebranded GSN Games Barcelona branch of the company.
“The Gamedonia team brings both leading technologists and a high performing mobile backend platform with the services and tools required to accelerate game development,” said Xicota.
“While this is an exciting change for the team at Gamedonia, we want to reassure all of our existing customers that the Gamedonia platform they have come to rely on for backend and real-time game development will remain the same for the foreseeable future.”
“To all our customers, thank you for helping us grow and improve the Gamedonia platform over the last four years.”
“Now that we are shifting focus to work on GSN Games projects, we will no longer accept new customer sign ups as of today,” he announced.
