Some RPG devs come, others go, but Lichdom developer Xaviant is marching on. It’s recently purchased a 50% stake in Blue Mammoth Games, investing in the side scrolling, free to play MMO Dungeon Blitz. Of course, it will also finance any future MMO games to come out of Blue Mammoth.
CEO of Blue Mammoth Games Matt Woomer stated, “This partnership is a huge opportunity for Blue Mammoth. Xaviant gives us more experience on our management team, and the funds to grow Dungeon Blitz and its dedicated user base by providing new content and updates. The investment will also help us to aggressively develop more games on the unique MMO platform we’ve built.”
Michael McMain, CEO of Xaviant, is psyched about the investment. “We’ve been looking for a talented team that could expand our portfolio of titles, and we found that in Blue Mammoth Games. They been making MMOs for years, and with Dungeon Blitz, that experience is paying off. What’s more, they’ve built an incredible technology platform that will help them and us replicate their success on even more titles going forward. We couldn’t ask for anything better.”
