505 Games Acquires Infinity Plus Two

505 Games announces the acquisition of Infinity Plus Two, saying this will help them make further inroads into the free-to-play marketplace. This Australian developer was founded by Steve Fawkner, who also founded Infinite Interactive, a studio he sold in 2011. Infinity Plus Two has specialized in puzzle games, including the continuation of the Puzzle Quest series that was originated by Infinite Interactive. Here's a bit:
Fawkner will continue to lead the studio, transitioning onto the management team within 505 Games.

“IP2 is a proven studio with phenomenal success over the years. Their creative vision and extensive experience will be a great addition to 505 Games,” said Clive Robert, Head of Free-to-Play at 505 Games. “The F2P market has seen a tremendous amount of growth and rise in popularity over the years and has always been a key facet of the company’s growth strategy. As one of the leading third-party publishers of F2P games across multiple platforms, this latest acquisition solidifies our investment in internal development and builds on our library of owned IP.”

Prior to the acquisition, 505 Games collaborated with Infinity Plus Two on publishing the F2P puzzle RPG Gems of War. The game will continue to operate with major new updates on the roadmap alongside other high-profile projects.
