EA Buys Yet Another Social Games Developer
After its recent acquisition of Popcap Games, EA is in full buyout mode, and has just purchased iOS Developer Bight Games for an undisclosed sum. Bight Games, a Canadian developer, is responsible for hot free to play titles that include Trade Nations a top 50 title on the iPad and iPhone that has recently migrated over to the Facebook social gaming sphere. As of now, there are no plans to rope Bight Games into EA Interactive, EA’s social gaming wing, but that is of course subject to change. While EA is being a bit greedy at this point, they are making smart corporate decisions and preparing for a brave new social-gaming driven world. Hopefully, these acquisitions will not do anything to disrupt EA’s commitment to console and PC gaming, but after all EA is a corporation, and to survive you have to change with the times.
