Rovio Buys Futuremark Games Studio

Angry Birds maker Rovio has acquired Futuremark Games Studio for an undisclosed amount of money, according to an announcement made by the company today. Rovio says that this acquisition is part of its "rapid expansion" into entertainment, publishing, animation, and retail. Futuremark Games Company develops games such as Shattered Horizon, Hungribles, and Unstoppable Gorg. Last summer Rovio purchased Kombo Animation Studio.

What the company plans to do with Futuremark Games Studio is unknown, but the company is trying to buy its way out of being a one-trick pony: Angry Birds.

Angry Birds Space, the latest title based on Rovio's popular birds v. pigs franchise, launched on various platforms last Thursday. The game has already been downloaded 10 million times since launch.
