EA Games achizitoneaza Firemint

Real Racing 2 sau Flight Control sunt doar 2 dintre cele mai populare jocuri lansate de Firemint insa in curand vor face parte din portofoliul EA Games. Gigantul industriei gaming-ului a anuntat astazi achizitia firmei Firemint intr-o tranzactie ce va avea loc undeva in urmatoarele 4 saptamani. Firemint este un o firma independenta dezvoltatoare de jocuri iar Flight Control si Real Racing 2 au milioane de fani in intreaga lume. Recent compania a lansat in premiera un update pentru Real Racing 2 care aduce continut grafic in format 1080p pentru celebrul joc.

Cei de la EA Games nu au anuntat cifra pentru care a fost achizitionata compania Firemint si probabil nici nu o vor anunta insa important este ca jocurile existente vor evolua. Partea buna este ca echipa celor de la Firemint va avea acum mult mai multe resurse disponibile pentru dezvoltarea jocurilor deci ne asteptam la titluri mult mai interesante in viitor insa lansate sub brandul EA Games.
