In more Clash of Clans developer Supercell news, the company has announced today that it has sold 51% of the company to SoftBank and GungHo Entertainment for the ridiculous amount of $1.5 billion making this one of the biggest mobile game studio purchases to date. It isn’t like either company didn’t have the money to spare, especially after GungHo Entertainment’s release of Puzzle and Dragons which makes them a staggering amount of money by itself.
A couple of weeks ago we talked about the fact that Supercell had changed their stance on bringing Clash of Clans to Android after long stating that they wouldn’t be doing that.

Supercell, the developers of the extremely popular strategy game called Clash of Clans, has decided to rethink their position on bringing the game to Android. Back in November of last year Supercell made headlines through the Android gaming community when they announced that there would not be an Android port of Clash of Clans. This was basically because the costs outweighed the possible profit that the company would make, at least at that time.
Once in awhile we get to report on news that, in this day and age, we really shouldn’t have to report on but end up having to anyways due to the popularity of a particular game and the fact that there surely are Android gamers out there hoping that said particular game would be coming to Android. Today we get to do one of these reports on Clash of Clans, developed by Supercell, who has announced that a port will not be arriving for Android, at least not for right now.
