Leading developer and content provider Microgaming has announced that it’s completed the sale of its Quickfire business to the newly-founded Games Global.
Yesterday (May 3rd) marked the official operational launch of the firm after it completed its acquisition of Microgaming’s Quickfire distribution business, iconic game IP, and legendary progressive network, as well as interest in a variety of game studios.
The firm, which was established last year by a group of industry veterans, has confirmed regulatory licencing. It boasts over 3,000 casino games and jackpot titles, and it services over 900 casino brands.
Games Global’s website has stated that studio development is its focus and has promised to give each developer studio the freedom, platform, tools, and distribution network to fully explore their creativity and inspire revolutionary new developments to enhance the player experience and grow the industry “into previously uncharted territory”.
Walter Bugno, the CEO of Games Global, said of the deal: “It is with immense enthusiasm I proudly confirm that today marks the official go live of Games Global.
“We’re incredibly excited for what we can achieve as we deliver industry-leading content, power continuous growth providing mutual success for Games Global and our partners. Games Global is ready to define the future, lead innovation, and make a real difference in the industry.”
Microgaming has confirmed that it will focus on continuing to provide platform systems and services to leading online gaming brands, including Games Global and its customers, following the sale.
According to the studio’s news post, it will also continue to license its sports betting software while investing in and building on the technology.
