EA Mobile Acquires Worms Mobile Rights

Wed, Feb 24, 2010

iPhone, Mobile

As reported by CasualGaming.biz, EA Mobile has acquired the mobile rights for the Worms franchise from THQ Wireless and Team17.  This includes all previously released Worms mobile titles, including Worms 2008, Worms 2007, Worms Forts 3D, Worms Crazy Golf and Worms 2.

Team17 has retained the franchise’s iPhone rights, however, and will continue to create games for the App Store to go alongside its previously released title, simply called Worms.

EA Mobile’s acquisition of the franchise’s rights continues in the company’s drive to become one of the biggest names in the mobile gaming space, as they have previously acquired the rights to distribute games from other developers, including Taito, Eidos and Namco Bandai.
