Zynga Acquires November Software
November Software is an independent gaming company that has developed games like Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Social gaming company Zynga has acquired November Software for an undisclosed amount of money. November Software started in April 2011 and started a new game like Inemeri: A Familiar World.
November stopped working on that game and then started a new game code-named Golden Arrow. The Golden Arrow trailer got the attention of Zynga. After Zynga acquired November, Golden Arrow now is code-named Battlestone.
“Speaking with the folks at Zynga, we were immediately blown away with the conviction and energy they had about making kick-ass mobile games that leave a strong, memorable impression on players,” November Software CEO Szymon Swistun wrote. “We realized we could accelerate game development by combining our team’s expertise building blockbuster console games and Zynga’s strength in building social games on a massive scale.”This article was written by Amit Chowdhry.
