Social mobile game publisher Glu Mobile on Wednesday announced that it has acquired the Deer Hunter
IP from Atari, and now possesses exclusive rights to use the license.
Glu Mobile has been working with the Deer Hunter
name for some seven years now, making titles for numerous mobile platforms. Before the recent acquisition, companies like Southlogic Studios had developed Deer Hunter
titles for Windows, but now Glu Mobile has become the series’ sole proprietor.
The company said that up until now, it has generated more than $21 million in revenue from the Deer Hunter
brand, and it plans to bring the series to the Mac, the Chrome Web Store, and Smart TVs.
