Back in January this year, video game developer Take-Two announced the acquisition of Zynga. Social game developers will get new owners for a whopping $ 12.7 billion. This is certainly not the highest amount since the acquisition of Activision by Microsoft for nearly $ 69 billion. However, it is still a very impressive amount. That’s a lot more than what the Embracer Group paid for some of Square Enix’s winning IP addresses. Take two or two happens to be the big company behind Rockstar and other companies, announced it would close the deal on May 23rd. In fact, the deal will be fully completed before the end of June. The deal could largely lead to a new GTA Mobile.

The shareholders of the two companies on Thursday approved all proposals related to the merger. It is expected to end next Monday, May 23. Zynga shares will be suspended after the market closes on Friday and will no longer be part of the Nasdaq. Interestingly, it will occupy the position of the greatest asset in the history of the gaming industry. We’ve already said that Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard goes far beyond that, but it will take some time to complete. Until then, the crown will receive the acquisition of Take-Two.

Take-Two will step up efforts on mobile platforms, GTA Mobile is a great opportunity

According to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnik, Zynga’s experience can help it develop its free and cross-platform ambitions and transfer its console and computing features to mobile devices.

For those who don’t know, Take-Two is based in New York and is one of the largest game developers and publishers in the United States. He owns a number of studios, such as 2K Games and Rockstar Games, and his representative works currently include the Grand Theft Auto and Bioshock series. Zynga, on the other hand, is a social gaming company based in San Francisco, USA. His representative works include the series “FarmVille”, “Treasure Isle” and “Texas Hold’em”.

Zynga CEO Frank Gibo added: “We are excited to take a step forward by combining Zynga’s free game and next-generation mobile platform with best-in-class Take-Two features and renowned intellectual property.” This could lead to a whole new GTA Mobile. In the end, the game would fit perfectly with the current mobile industry.

GTA Mobile

So far, the exact future of Zynga under the control of Take-Two is unclear. The company can transfer or create new IP addresses for mobile platforms. The company’s most successful title, GTA V, for example, is one of the most profitable online games in history. The game has nearly 170 million copies worldwide, which is a world record for the gaming industry. Maybe in the future the mobile port of GTA V may become a reality. Ultimately, the hardware of mobile smartphones is improving every year.

Take-Two has many IP addresses to reveal in the coming years. However, all expectations and noise are carried to GTA VI.
