As you may have read, GetSocial has been acquired by Keywords Studios, the international technical services provider to the global video games industry.

We’re very excited about this development, as the reach and scale of Keywords (with customers like SuperCell, EA, Tencent and many others) presents an incredible opportunity for us to deliver a broader range of services and benefits to our clients, increase our customer base and continue to develop the platform to be the best-in-class social solution for apps and games out there!

Andrew Day, CEO at Keywords Studios had this to say:

“I am delighted to welcome the talented GetSocial team to the Keywords family.  It extends our technology base further, bringing to Keywords a leading edge capability built around the social interactions of players in games, which we hope to promote more widely and develop further.

“As part of the Group, GetSocial will work alongside both our engineering and marketing services teams. It will be fully supported by our worldwide sales team in introducing these capabilities to Keywords’ game developer and publisher clients globally, for whom technology that supports social sharing is an important part of attracting and retaining gamers.”

We look forward to working with you, and our new colleagues at Keywords Studios, as we move into this exciting new phase for GetSocial.
