GREE Adds Crime City Developer To Their Stable

Posted by Blake Grundman on May 2nd, 2012

Social gaming company GREE is on quite the roll as of late.  Those of you that have been following this space for any length of time should remember this name as the company that snapped up cross-platform gaming juggernaut OpenFeint back in April of last year for a reported $104 million.  Since then the company has obviously continued to build on their current portfolio, announcing today that they have acquired Crime City developer Funzio for a reported $210 million.

The move seems to fall right in line with GREE's current stable of cross-platform social games.  Among the other titles that will now bear the GREE name will be Modern War and Kingdom Age, both of which already have their own established followings. This will help move the publisher one step closer to their goal of one billion worldwide users.  We can only assume that this will be followed by them running for public office and executing their plans for world domination.  Watch your back, they could be coming for your favorite social game next!
