News broke today that YoYoGames has been bought by PlayTech.
I don’t know what this will mean for the future of GameMaker: Studio, but often when a company sells a property to another party, or is acquired, there’s a distinct change in direction, and this usually makes people who’ve been happy with the current direction unhappy. As someone who’s been happy with the current direction that YYG has been steering GM:S for the last four years, I’m therefore concerned. What will the future bring? I have no idea. I just hope that GameMaker remains in good hands.
