King, who has developed some pretty successful mobile games in the past, recently released their newest game onto Android which happens to be a live multiplayer card game called Shuffle Cats. This game takes place in the 1920s, and so everything is themed around that era in time. The company has already pushed out the game’s first update.
Activision Blizzard has decided to acquire a mobile game publisher and it just so happens to be the company behind the strangely popular match-3 puzzle game Candy Crush. 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. That’s not a typo either.
King has been in the news a lot lately and not for the best of reasons but today is a bit different as the company prepares to file for their IPO which is looking to be valued at possibly over $500 million, at least according to the Wall Street Journal.

Last week King, the developers of Candy Crush Saga and publisher of numerous browser-based games, made headlines a few times for a few different reasons.

The developers of Candy Crush Saga have been in the news a lot over the last few days and not for any particular good reason. King made headlines over the recent trademarking of the word ‘Candy’ and then made even more headlines by trying to go after the developers of The Banner Saga because they used the word ‘Saga’, another word that King has trademarked.
King, the developers of the ridiculously popular match-3 puzzle game Candy Crush Saga, have released a new match-3 puzzle game onto Android called Farm Heroes Saga. So is this new game just a re-skinning of Candy Crush Saga or is it something different?
A game development company called King, who develop social games on a variety of platforms, has announced that they will be bringing Pet Rescue Saga to Android this Summer.
