Mech Warrior dev acquires social studio

Roadhouse Interactive has acquired Facebook and iOS developer The Embassy Interactive.

Roadhouse is best known for Mech Warrior Tactics and Family Guy Online, targeting the core gaming demographic.

But the company has big plans for the social and mobile markets, and says this purchase is a major step forward in making those dreams a reality.

"The acquisition of Embassy is a strategic fit for us and a critical step in our growth,” said Roadhouse CEO James Hursthouse.

“Roadhouse continues to grow as an end-to-end solution provider for the development, production, and live game operations of Triple A online and social games.

"This acquisition opens a new chapter in the Roadhouse story, enabling us to move forward with an expanded slate of innovative projects in the future.”

The Embassy Interactive was founded in 2008 by a group of Canadian veterans, and has built games for Facebook and iOS.

The team will continue to operate independently, but will be known as Roadhouse Game Studios.
