SGN acquires independent studio Mob Science

Mobile-social games company SGN has acquired independent studio Mob Science as reported by AllThingsD.

SGN, best known for its puzzle game Panda Jam has an estimated 11,184,018 monthly active users across all of its games according to AppData. With the acquisition, SGN claims Mob Science’s entire portfolio including Facebook RPG, Legends: Rise of a Hero, its most popular game. Mob Science currently has a monthly active user estimate of 303,321 according to AppData.

SGN, formerly MindJolt, was founded by MySpace Cofounder Chris DeWolfe. Zynga has previously invested in Mob Science through its partners program and published Legends: Rise of a Hero. The monetary terms of the deal were not disclosed.

It looks as if SGN is looking at expanding its offerings to work with the studio on improving its existing offerings. By acquiring its Mob Science’s entire portfolio, SGN will be able to offer the independent studio greater capacity at developing future titles.
