Sent via press release, EA has today confirmed the merger of two Australian based mobile development studios IronMonkey and Firemint, birthing a new super studio dubbed Firemonkeys.
Spearheading EA’s mobile gaming ventures, both studios are highly experienced in bringing enjoyable gameplay to iOS and Android platforms. Firemint is perhaps best known for Flight Control and Real Racing, meanwhile IronMonkey has been busy with console franchise tie-ins like Dead Space for mobile and Mass Effect: Infiltrator.
The merger is a result of positive growth in the mobile space, and combining the two studios will establish Firemonkeys as Australia’s largest game development studio.
EA promises project announcements from Firemonkeys before the year is out.
