Nexon Korea, a subsidiary of free-to-play, social, and mobile publisher, Nexon, has agreed to purchase DomiNations developer Big Huge Games for an undisclosed fee.
Co-founded by industry veterans Brian Reynolds and Tim Train, the brains behind Civilization II, Big Huge was founded in 2013, and struck up a partnership with Nexon shortly after.
The studio's debut title, DomiNations, has racked up over 19 million downloads worldwide since launching in April 2015. Going forward Nexon and Big Huge will look to supplement DomiNations' success.
"Together, Nexon and Big Huge Games will provide long-term, comprehensive service of DomiNations, including game development, operations, user support and marketing," read a Nexon statement.
"Combining Big Huge Games’ skilled creative team and development capabilities with Nexon’s global publishing expertise will enable Nexon to consistently provide DomiNations players with fresh content and engaging experiences over the long-term."
