Breaking News! Playdom snaps up Metaplace in ongoing shopping spree
The exact terms of the deal have not been disclosed, though this press release indicates that the company is particularly interested in using Metaplace's virtual world game engine to make more social games. We've contacted Playdom to see if they plan to keep Metaplace's games running or if this means goodbye to our pristine wine-making facilities in My Vineyard.
Over the past year, Playdom has been busy gobbling up smaller gaming companies which include Hive 7, Offbeat Creations, Merscom, Three Melons, Green Patch and Trippert Labs. Looks like Playdom's willing to spend big bucks to stay a top contender in the social games space.
