So how much did the company fork out to buy King? Well according to the details released about the acquisition that was announced last night, Activision paid out just under $6 Billion.

It seems like Deep Silver FISHLABS have been signing a good amount of publishing deals as of late. Over the past few months, Deep Silver FISHLABS has signed similar deals with Animation Arts, ISBIT Games, Chimera Entertainment, OKAM Studio, Tama Games, and Mutant Games. This new one marks the 6th deal the company has done which is related to either teaming up with another company to help develop and publish a game, or to help publish and promote a third-party game.
