Today we are announcing the acquisition of Seismic Games, and want to extend a warm welcome to their talented team.
The Seismic Games studio is comprised of industry veterans hailing from EA/Pandemic and Activision. The founders have led development efforts on blockbuster games such as the original Star Wars: Battlefront, and the Seismic team currently works with major partners like Marvel, FoxNext, Sony Television, Alcon Interactive, and others, on cutting edge mobile and VR games like Marvel: Strikeforce & Blade Runner: Revelations. Seismic will continue to see through its existing slate of titles in development as it transitions into building all new AR experiences with Niantic.
We recently gave a peek under the hood of the Niantic Real World Platform, and we see the addition of Seismic Games as a significant accelerant for realizing our vision of an operating system that bridges the digital and the physical worlds.
At Niantic, we’re committed to our mission of motivating people to exercise, be social, and discover new places. We’re confident that Seismic Games will help us deliver on that mission — faster, and better.
