Tiga dismisses renewed UKIE merger talks

Tiga is uninterested in talk of a merger with fellow UK game industry trade body UKIE, a spokesman has toldDevelop.

During last week’s UKIE AGM, chairman Andy Payne said he was "extending a hand" to Tiga CEO Richard Wilson and the board to discuss how the two trade bodies could collaborate. He said such a merger would be easier for politicians and the media, and the current split meant the game industry only had "half our voice, half our power".

In response, a Tiga spokesman said although it was "flattered by their continued admiration" of the trade body, its position remains the same as it was in 2011.
