This deal means that games such as Fast & Furious 6: The Game, Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon and The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth will be brought to Windows mobile devices, while future releases will arrive on these devices at the same time as on other platforms.
Corporate vice president and chief evangelist, developer experience and evangelism at Microsoft, Steven Guggenheimer, said that Kabam is a leader in free-to-play games with a track record of creating games that people love. He added, “Bringing its existing franchise games as well as future hit titles makes the Windows ecosystem even more robust. In return Kabam will enjoy unmatched monetization opportunities, such as our industry-leading 61 carrier billing connections in 36 markets.”
Kabam reported revenues of $360 million in 2013 and it now has 800 employees. No terms of the deal were disclosed.
