505 Games acquires D3 Go!Italian publisher takes full ownership of the Puzzle Quest series.
505 Games parent company Digital Bros. has acquired free-to-play mobile games publisher D3 Go! from D3 Publisher and parent company Bandai Namco, the company announced.
D3 Go! is the Encino, California-based publisher behind Marvel Puzzle Quest, Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns, and other titles. The acquisition grants 505 Games full ownership of the Puzzle Quest franchise, following the purchase of Puzzle Quest series developer Infinity Plus 2 in 2021.
“D3 Go! has done a brilliant job bringing some of the biggest Puzzle Quest titles to market, and it was a natural fit for us to welcome them into the 505 Games family, building on our library of owned IP,” said 505 Games free-to-play head Clive Robert in a press release. “This acquisition marks the second for us in only two years as we continue our dedication to growing the free-to-play business unit and bringing to gamers the best there is to offer—from original games, to powerhouse licenses, and beyond.”
The titles inherited from D3 Go! will continue to operate and be supported with new content under 505 Games, with additional investments in the near future.
D3 Go!’s team of eight will join 505 Games’ United States office in Calabasas, California.
