Activision offers $5.9 billion for Candy Crush developer

November 3rd, 2015 by

Candy-crush-saga-portadaIn today’s ‘how fucking much?!’ news, Activison have offered a not-insubstantial $5.9 billion to purchase Candy Crush developer King. To put that in perspective, it’s nearly $2 billion more than Disney paid for Star Wars, more than Facebook paid for Occulus and more than Microsoft paid for Minecraft.

While that may seem that an ungodly amount of money for a game that’s regularly┬áregarded as an example of all that’s wrong with mobile gaming, Candy Crush is still a literal money printing machine and if there’s one thing Activision love, it’s Scrooge McDuck-ian amounts of money.

Worth nothing that the deal hasn’t actually been agreed, at this stage Activision have just made an offer to purchase. However, both King and Activision will be holding a conference call today to discuss further.
