Known for their mid-core mobile games, Riposte Games & Co was acquired by Kabam earlier this week. The acquisition was announced via a press release sent out a bit earlier in the week, with Tim Fields, the CEO of Kabam, even touching on some of their plans for the future.
“With the acquisition of Riposte Games & Co, we are executing on our growth strategy and we are excited to expand into new gaming genres,” Fields said in the report. He continued, “Riposte’s strategy and simulation gaming experience allows us to grow and diversify our portfolio in 2019. They make great games with addictive core loops and strong social experiences and are the kind of game makers with whom we want to partner in our mission to entertain the world.”
Riposte was founded back in 2014 and has made quite a name for itself creating mid-core free-to-play games for mobile phones and PC. The company’s history includes titles like Mini Guns – Omega Wars, Dungeon Stars and Shop Heroes. Developers from big studios like Ubisoft, Gameloft and Ludia all call Riposte home, giving it a diverse and well-established group to work with.
Johan Eile, the General Manager of Kabam Montreal also stated that “We’re beyond thrilled to join the Kabam family as this mutually beneficial partnership will lead to more engaging and unique gaming experiences that players can enjoy in the palm of their hand. Everyone is excited for the future and we can’t wait to share our next title with the world soon!”
