July 2nd, 2010 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Companies & M&A | No Comments »

Disney has acquires Tapulous, the creator of the many TapTap Revenge games on the app store (as well as a few other apps). The sum is undisclosed but will probably surface soon.

Disney is likely to let Tapulous operate the way it has always done, though under the Disney flag. Until now, Tapulous didn’t only manage to be profitable in a highly competitive market, but the company also signed successful deals with several record labels and bands.

“Mobile gaming is seeing unprecedented growth and this is the right time to invest to strengthen our position in the mobile business,” said Wadsworth. “In a short time, Bart and Andrew have built Tapulous into a successful and accomplished mobile games developer that’s emerged as one of the most successful companies in the industry. We welcome the Tapulous team to the Disney family and look forward to integrating their popular games into Disney’s offerings.”

“Tapulous has been on the leading-edge of mobile gaming. By joining Disney, we will be able to continue to excel in this evolving industry and more quickly realize our vision to lead the mobile, social entertainment revolution,” said Decrem. “With Disney’s powerful breadth of content and heritage in technological innovation, they are the perfect partner for Tapulous. It is a true honor to join the Disney team.”
