Rovio Entertainment Acquires Futuremark Games Studio

Rovio Entertainment Acquires Futuremark Games Studio

Finland has a thriving game development scene and talented people are always in demand, which is why I am excited to tell you that Futuremark Games Studio has been acquired by rapidly expanding Finnish developer Rovio Entertainment, creator of Angry Birds. The Shattered Horizon, Hungribles and Unstoppable Gorg IPs will remain with Futuremark.

 

Here at Futuremark, we will renew our focus on creating great benchmarks and performance measurement software for gamers, home users, small businesses and the IT industry. This year will see a new version of 3DMark that, for the first time, will allow a direct comparison of gaming performance across operating systems and form factors, as well as a new version of PCMark for Windows 8.

 

Futuremark Games Studio is the second acquisition for Rovio in the past year, after the acquisition of Kombo Animation Studio last summer. As Rovio continues its rapid expansion in entertainment, publishing, animation, and retail, the company will continue to focus on seeking out the world’s best talent to join its team. At this moment, Rovio employs nearly 300 people on three continents.
