Zynga has announced that it has recently closed the acquisition of NanoTribe, an independent mobile game studio based in Germany.  

The Berlin-based studio is the first studio outside of Turkey managed by Rollic, a subsidiary of Zynga, adding to Rollic’s roster of game developers and marking the expansion of its base into new markets. NanoTribe has previously published games with Rollic, including “Cashier 3D” and “Arrow Fest,” and will continue to develop original mobile titles in-house under the Rollic umbrella.  

“The start-up mentality and passion of the team behind NanoTribe is a great match for our path forward at Rollic and we are excited to welcome their titles and talents to our growing family of innovative developers,” says Burak Vardal, co-founder, Rollic. “Our focus is on building an engaging global portfolio of games and finding great talent whose vision is in-line with our goal to create fun, accessible and engaging content for our users.”  

This deal continues Rollic’s global growth following the 2021 acquisitions of the Turkey-based mobile studios ByteTyper, Creasaur Entertainment, Uncosoft and ZeroSum. Rollic has crossed 1 billion total downloads worldwide with 16 games that have reached the No. 1 or No 2 top free downloaded game positions in the U.S. App Store.
