Social/Mobile Game Developer Service Provider Nextive Acquired by Globant

Globant, a Buenos Aires-based software service provider, announced the acquisition of San Francisco-based social and mobile game developer service Nextive today for an undisclosed sum.

Nextive claims to have worked with the likes of Crowdstar, GSN and Zynga, providing services that range from basic quality assurance testing to full game design and engineering. As part of Globant, Nextive will head up the company’s mobile studio and increase its reach in North America. In a statement sent out via press release, Nextive CEO Andrew Burgert says he looks forward to working with Globant’s existing clients, which include EA, Disney, Sony, Linkedin and Google.

Globant recently made headlines by landing $15 million in financing from Riverwood Capital and FTV Capital. The company provides clients with software products designed in a mix of open source and proprietary software. With the Nextive acquisition, the company broadens its portfolio to include mobile and social game development.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Nextive’s 130 employees will join Globant staff in San Francisco, Buenos Aires and Cordoba.
