‘Candy Crush’ Company Sold for $5.9 Billion
I don’t play games…so I see this headline and my first thought is…clearly I took the wrong direction in life, I should have been a game designer! This stuff can be big bucks. But really, I guess they made some serious money off this mobile games. Activision Blizzard said Tuesday that it plans to acquire King Digital Entertainment, maker of the popular game "Candy Crush Saga," for $5.9 billion. Ya…BILLION…with a B.
Activision is a player in this industry. Activision is best known for producing traditional games like Guitar Hero and Call of Duty that are played on PCs or gaming consoles. Now it will have a stronger foothold in the mobile gaming industry. So, I guess they do know what they are doing!
