Nifty Games Studio is shutting down along with its popular titles NFL Clash and NBA Clash

Another one bites the dust!

Nifty Games CEO Jon Middleton announces on his LinkedIn and announced that the studio is shutting down its operations after a long run of 5 years. Alongside this, he also confirmed that it will be discontinuing two of its most popular games, NFL Clash and NBA Clash. Nifty Games Studio, known for its innovative and engaging sports-themed mobile games, had earned a dedicated fanbase with NFL Clash and NBA Clash. These games brought the excitement of American football and basketball to millions of players worldwide.

However, as an independent developer and publisher, the results fell short of what the studio needed in terms of the commercial success of the games. Middleton mentioned how proud he was of the studio’s achievements in creating two top-notch free-to-play games with two of the most renowned sports brand. He cited how there’s been a significant change in the mobile gaming industry forcing them to downsize over the last year, abandon their games, and now shut down their studios.
