The Telegraph has reported that Amazon has acquired GameSparks, a Dublin based company whose backend development tools are used by more than 10,000 developers.
From the article:
Amazon’s takeover of GameSparks signals its determination to dominate video games, which are now a bigger market than films or music. Global revenues approached $100bn (£77 bn) last year and are expected to increase to more than $130bn by 2022. Amazon declined to comment on the acquisition.
