Metacore receives $180 million investment from Supercell
Metacore recently announced a $180 million investment from Supercell, the maker of popular games such as Clash of Clans. This investment will significantly impact the company and its plans for the future.
Let’s consider how this investment will be used and what it could mean for Metacore’s portfolio.
Metacore’s Expansion Plans
Metacore recently announced an investment from gaming powerhouse Supercell that will help Metacore expand its games portfolio. With the added funding, Metacore plans to expand their staff, acquire new studios and develop more successful mobile titles that will help bolster the games library and bring more gamers into the Metacore family.
Specifically, Metacore plans to open offices across Europe, South Korea and Russia, where mobile gaming is starting to take off. This expansion will allow the company access to dozens of developers across several countries to create new experiences for players who may already be familiar with traditional video games. Additionally, they plan on taking advantage of potential partnerships between local developers in these regions.
The experienced team at Metacore plan on leveraging their expertise by exploring different ways of creating meaningful experiences that mesh with current trends in the gaming industry. They also believe that this influx of capital from Supercell will give them an even greater opportunity to find genuine success through game design. The Metacore team believes that by uniting with regional developers they have a chance to stay ahead of other major opponents in the industry such as 3D Motion Gaming, which is expected to rise into prominence throughout 2020.
Benefits for Supercell
Supercell, a mobile game developer, announced a strategic investment in Metacore (formerly known as Everywear Games) that could revolutionise the gaming industry in multiple ways. Supercell’s investment into Metacore offers several benefits for both companies.
For Supercell, this strategic investment allows the company to extend its portfolio of games and maximise the return on existing games produced by Metacore. It also reduces dependence on one product or genre of games and provides a platform to explore new market opportunities faster and more efficiently. Additionally, it enables them to tap into other ecosystems and broaden their customer base. Finally, having a developed product pipeline gives them greater flexibility when entering different markets or generating new titles via co-production or external partners like Metacore.
Supercell’s investment also gives them increased visibility in the mobile game economy and access to advanced technical capabilities that may not be otherwise available. Furthermore, due to Metacore’s experienced team and the countless players who love their titles, Supercell can ramp up operations quickly and effectively. With this co-production model in place, resources can be redistributed more cost effectively between both parties to optimize monetization options and further improve market reach for both entities, enhancing shareholder value for all concerned parties – without disrupting cash flow from existing games developed independently by Supercell itself before the merger.
