Zynga Acquires Floodgate Entertainment

Zynga has acquired the independent game developer Floodgate Entertainment.

Zynga has further expanded its empire, announcing today the acquisition of Floodgate Entertainment.

This amounts to Zynga’s tenth acquisition in as many months, expanding the company’s existing presence in Boston and adding ten different game titles on different platforms.

Here’s what Zynga had to say about the deal on its own blog:

We are delighted to announce that the team from independent game developer Floodgate Entertainment is joining the Zynga family today, bringing a wealth of experience in developing big brand mobile titles that have won awards and commercial success across casual, mobile and PC platforms. The newest team members from Floodgate will join our growing Zynga Boston office.

This addition showcases our commitment to working with top-notch talent that shares our passion for building innovative and fun social games. Industry veteran and Floodgate founder Paul Neurath will join Zynga Boston as Creative Director. Paul brings over two decades of experience in game development to Zynga and is responsible for a number of acclaimed titles. In 1990 Paul founded Blue Sky Productions, which became LookingGlass in 1992.

We’re continuing to grow, in Boston and beyond, and that means we need more great minds to join our team!
