The deal, which includes the purchase of $89.7 million in stock, won’t be the end of Bigpoint but will see the merger of the two companies become a force for future game offerings. “With the support of Youzu, we will be able to further invest in our talent, the amazing experiences they create, and the reach of our games,” said Bigpoint CEO Khaled Helioui.
Bigpoint owns and operates a large library of titles, including Drakensang Online, Battlestar Galactica Online, and Dino Storm. The company also has a Game of Thrones MMO that’s been in the works for a while. Back in 2011, the company was valued at $600 million.
