Will we see a revival of this formula that has worked so well on the PC? Micro-transactions in place of monthly fees and expansions instead of downloadable content packs and updates. If this acquirement can lead to further competition in the free-to-play indie market then we may find out.
Today Z2Live has announced to the press that they have acquired Big Sandwich Games. Together these game development figures are likely to bring more high quality games to the scene.
“Big Sandwich Games clearly executes at a level that meets our bar for quality,” said Lou Fasulo, COO at Z2Live. “The acquisition represents a key part of our long term strategy to build, operate and scale genre defining games.”
Best known for Battle Nations, Z2Live is a strong proponent of Free-to-Play and has reached a playerbase of over 25 million worldwide. With fully loaded, indie Vancouver studio Big Sandwich Games in their arsenal and are likely to be cranking out plenty of gaming goodness soon.
