Vivendi announced on their website the acquisition of Centerscore, a mobile studio that has released several award winning titles. With the acquisition, Vivendi hopes to accelerate their growth into the market.

"The Vivendi Games Mobile division is gaining good traction in the worldwide mobile marketplace," said Cindy Cook, chief strategy and marketing officer for Vivendi Games. "The addition of the Centerscore team is another step in our plan to be among the top mobile publishers in the industry."

"Centerscore’s imaginative games have consistently been top sellers; and the diverse lineup of titles, particularly their excellent range of casual games, is a welcome addition to our existing portfolio," said Paul Maglione, president, Vivendi Games Mobile. "What we found most exceptional about Centerscore is the Company’s ability to successfully build a team of designers, artists, developers and testers from the ground up, and to execute the creation and distribution of great games from under one roof."

"As a young, creative team built around developing original games, Centerscore was hesitant to join a large company. However, Vivendi Games Mobile has the vision, the strength and the people with heart to make them an oustanding market leader," said Oliver Miao, CEO of Centerscore. "We are truly thrilled to join the Vivendi Games Mobile team in delivering exciting, new games to everyday people."
