Zynga spent more than $20m to acquire mid-core games developer A Bit Lucky, according to a report.
Speaking to Bloomberg, sources “with knowledge of the deal” said the purchase was worth between $20m-to-$25m.
The sources asked not to be named as the terms of the deal were not officially disclosed.
The start-up studio was acquired by the social gaming giant earlier this week, with its 20 employees joining Zynga’s San Francisco office.
A Bit Lucky was founded by Frederic Descamps and Jordan Maynard, with employees at the developer including veterans from Trion Worlds and xfire.
The studio is currently working on a new title named Solstice Arena, with development on the project expected to continue as part of the deal.
