Koch acquires mobile developer Fishlabs

Koch Media has acquired mobile developer Fishlabs, the studio behind the Galaxy on Fire series.

It was reported earlier today thatFishlabs has been acquired by an unnamed party, but multiple sources suggest the new owner is no longer anonymous.

German news sitesNewsslashandGamesMarket.deboth claim that Koch Media is the mysterious investor behind Fishlabs’ acquisition. And the firm has since confirmed it.

"The mobile gaming market is strategically important to Koch Media," said Koch MD Klemens Kundratitz.

"These days, games are played anytime and anywhere – both at home and on the go. The know-how and brands which Fishlabs brings along give us the expertise required in order to establish ourselves in this exciting field for the long term."

All 52 employees are now part of the Koch Media group, and the Hamburg site will be maintained as before.
