First confirmed by GamesBeat, Miniclip announced they have acquired mobile gaming studio Sybo.
Gredal Nørvig, CEO of Sybo, said to the outlet:
“It is indeed monumental. The founders have been really proud of what they managed to accomplish with Subway Surfers becoming the largest game, seeing how the market kept downloading, how the players kept loving, how the fans kept coming. We’ve had a very nice ride and over the last couple of years have seen the teams running very fine by themselves. With the consolidation happening in the market, and all the increased user acquisition budgets, all the things happening around us, they wanted to explore what that it could mean, if we could find the right fit or the right home for Sybo going forward. What’s really important for us is finding a partner who saw where we wanted to go and could enable our journey there.”
Sybo is best known as the developers of Subway Surfers which is experiencing around 30 million players per day.
