Ankama has acquired social and mobile game studio Wizcorp.
As well as developing games, the Tokyo-based developer also owns its own tech, including Node.js-based game engine MAGE.
Camille Chafer, CTO at French publisher Ankama, said he hoped the studio’s expertise in HTML5 and mobile would support the publisher’s ambitions in the space moving forward, as well as help it expand its operations in Japan.
“Wizcorp will play a key role in supporting the development of our different engines and software, and they will of course help us increase our development capabilities,” said Chafer.
Wizcorp CEO Guillaume Hansali added: “Within Ankama, Wizcorp will be able to put to good use the extensive experience it has acquired over the years on software, middleware and mobile games.”
