Ben Cousins joins Ngmoco

Ben Cousins, the former studio head at British outfit EA Easy, has joined mobile games group Ngmoco.

Cousins, who left EA in March, is now tasked with running and raising Ngmoco’s new Stockholm-based studio. Much of the studio’s work will be focused on building content for the social gaming platform Mobage.

Mobage is a mobile social games platform owned by Japanese-based firm Dena, which in October 2010 acquired Ngmoco for $400 million.

Cousins is behind EA’s successful foray into the free-to-play games market, and responsible for the free-to-play game Battlefield Heroes, which to date boasts around 7m users.

Develop will have more on the story as it happens.
