Firemint has been bought out by EA a long time ago, and now, EA thought of putting together Firemint with Iron Monkey to create Firemonkeys. The company announced last week of the merger:
“EA is bringing together two of the world’s leading mobile development studios – IronMonkey and Firemint – to form Firemonkeys. These two studios have entertained over 50 million players in 2012 alone with stellar titles including Flight Control, SPY mouse and Real Racing from Firemint, and Mass Effect Infiltrator, Dead Space and The Sims FreePlay from IronMonkey.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, both studios have been developing mobile games for over a decade and combining the two teams makes Firemonkeys Australia’s largest game development studio.”
