Jesus Christ - another lost cause company. They have basically shut down everything they were bought for. Their current games are 2 Marvel and 1 Star Wars games...all their online games were shuttered in 2014-04. #!TO_TAG_bit #acquisitions #web_2.0 #mobile_games #social_networks #for_kids #subsidiary_products #disney #%wiki #social_gaming #pub
God damn. Dude who was already big. Headed up Caesars Interactive stuff and bought Playtika, Israeli startup, for $150M in 2011 when they had under a dozen employees. Playtika would be sold for $4.4B to consortium of Chinese companies in 2016-07. 29x increase in 5 years. When Caesars was bought and taken by private in late 00s I think, it was valued at around $31B. Playtika got pretty damn big. Ahead of Zynga and Mojang. Only behind King and Supercell. -- Apparently the initial sale also caused Israel to become big in [mobile] games. 200+ game startups in Israel now. Impressive. #acquisitions #modern_era_games #pattern_our_way_of_taking_making_money_is_fair_fine_ala_SV #mobile_games #video_games #beast #startups #freemium #modern_era #gambling #boss_peeps #pub
