It is official: Activision Blizzard is dedicated to cellular gaming in an enormous means. The corporate has closed its $5.9 billion acquisition of King, making it the proprietor of Sweet Crush Saga and giving it 310 million additional customers. King will proceed to function independently, however make no mistake — that is about filling a niche at a recreation writer whose moneymakers are principally restricted to consoles and PCs. Between this, the buy of MLG and the creation of a video studio, it is evident that Activision needs to have all of the bases coated.
