Esports and skill gaming app Mobile Premier League (MPL) has acquired Germany-based GameDuell to foray into Europe.
The acquisition also marks MPL's entry into the mobile free-to-play (F2P) gaming segment. The terms of the purchase were not disclosed. With this deal, MPL will now have a presence in Europe, Asia and North America. It forayed into the United States in July last year.
"We believe our collaboration with GameDuell will give us the right strategic support and expertise to help us continue to offer exemplary gaming experience for both India and the world. Together, we look forward to creating best in class gaming experiences and growing the Mobile F2P segment" MPL cofounder and CEO Sai Srinivas said.
Founded in 2003, GameDuell says it offers more than 40 casual online skill games including community card and board games in seven languages. It has raised a total of over $17 million from investors such as Wellington Partners and Burda Digital Ventures.
