n January 2nd, UK-based game studio Blueprint Gaming, part of the Gauselmann Group, has officially announced the acquisition of omni-channel gaming provider Games Warehouse from the Harbour Group.
The deal will see Blueprint 'significantly boosting its operations, delivering a greater number of high quality games to the market,' according to Matt Cole, Managing Director of Blueprint Gaming.
“We are very pleased to welcome the Games Warehouse team to Blueprint Gaming. They will support our growth by continuing to develop creative games as well as back Blueprint’s development efforts. We are confident that the fit will work very well and we look forward to creating some innovative games together,” Cole further stated.
Games Warehouse, based in Derby, England, supplies content to the global gambling market, with its games available across online, mobile and retail channels.
Titles including Wild Bandits, Birdz and Gold Strike, are already live across numerous websites and retail outlets of some of the leading operators.
Staff members will continue to operate out of its existing office, where both the igaming and Skill With Prize (SWP) machine teams will support Blueprint’s development plans.
Brandon Bezzant, Harbour Group added: “Games Warehouse first created the SWP market and more recently successfully evolved into a standalone games developer for online and mobile.
“We are sure that as a part of Blueprint Gaming and the Gauselmann Group, the team can go from strength to strength.”
