Jam City and its games

For those who don’t know, Ludia has developed a bunch of popular games including official Jurassic Park/World titles while Jam City has published games like Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Family Guy Another Freakin’ Mobile Game, Family Guy The Quest For Stuff and other casual titles. Their global franchise Cookie Jam has generated more than half a billion dollars in revenue and they have hundreds of billions of downloads across their games. 

Both of these studios are certainly doing pretty well on their own but it should be interesting to see what comes out of this acquisition.
