Wargaming Mobile continues its European expansion with acquisition of Danish Hapti.co studio, rebranded as Wargaming Copenhagen. The studio will focus on the development of new mobile titles.
A former subsidiary of IO Interactive in Copenhagen, Hapti.co leverages the experience of established industry veterans to create engaging mobile games. Along with their new game projects as Wargaming Copenhagen, the team will continue to operate their back catalogue of live mobile games.
“The guys at Hapti.co were a perfect match for Wargaming’s mobile endeavours,” says head of Wargaming Mobile Keith Kawahata. “They have the expertise from working in the industry for years, a solid games portfolio that have cemented them in the market, and the ambition and drive to go from strength to strength as Wargaming Copenhagen.”
“Joining Wargaming offers us new opportunities and ways to grow,” says Hapti.co studio head Rune Vendler. “We’re really looking forward to getting started on new projects, and leveraging the skill and expertise of an industry giant like Wargaming to bring even more fantastic titles to our players.”
