Rovio acquires Futuremark Games

Rovio Entertainment has made another major move in its ‘rapid expansion’ effort.

The company has announced the acquisition Shattered Horizon and Unstoppable Gorg developer Futuremark Games Studio.

The studio is a division of benchmarking software firm Futuremark, and has developed for iOS, Mac, and PC.

"They are an incredibly talented and experienced team, and we are thrilled to have them on board," stated Mikael Hed, Rovio Entertainment's CEO. "Rovio's success is founded on the excellence of our team, and Futuremark Games Studio is going to be a superb addition."

The purchase amount was undisclosed, and at the moment it’s unclear exactly what the newly acquired team will be doing for the Angry Birds folk.
