11

Call of DutyandCandy Crush Saga” are about to belong to the same people.

US computer game company Activision Blizzard, which produces World of Warcraft and Call of Duty, is buying King Digital Entertainment, the creator of Candy Crush.

Activision Blizzard has just dropped $5.9 billion (RM 252,935,950,00.00) on Candy Crush studio King Digital Entertainment.

According to CNN News, Activision said in a statement the acquisition would make it a global leader in interactive entertainment across mobile, console and PC platforms.

The Call of Duty series is one of the world’s best selling console games.

Candy Crush is among the most popular games on mobile devices.

Apparently, Candy Crush is worth more than Star Wars.

Call of Candy: Advanced Crusher confirmed? We’ll see about that.

We can only hope for a Candy Crush / Call of Duty crossover one day. The acquisition won’t be finalised until it has the approval of both the Irish government and King Digital’s shareholders, but assuming that happens, King will join the Activision Blizzard family by mid next year.
