E-sports and skill gaming platform Mobile Premier League (MPL) has acquired Berlin-headquartered games studio GameDuell to expand operations across European markets.
The deal will allow the GameDuell management team to bring their experience in building multiplayer games like board, action arcade and puzzle games, to both an Indian and global audience across web, social and mobile platforms.
While the financial details weren’t disclosed, GameDuell employees will become a part of the MPL team.
Founded in 2003, GameDuell is one of Europe’s most experienced games studios and a global leader in community card and board games, a cross-platform gaming community with more than 40 casual online skill games delivered in seven languages.
MPL works with third-party developers and then publishes their game on the platform where users can participate in skill-based games including cricket, puzzles, chess and crossword to win cash prizes.
In September last year, the Sai Srinivas-led company had entered the coveted unicorn club by closing its Series E round at a valuation of $2.3 billion.
