Video game publisher Maximum Games today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to acquire Avanquest Software Publishing, a developer and publisher of video games in the UK. The company will operate solely under the Maximum Games name, the publisher confirmed. The acquisition marks Maximum’s move to expand distribution of its games globally, providing worldwide audiences with the same innovative video games delivered in the Americas.
Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games, stated: “We look at this exciting next step as the most effective way to broaden the reach of our video games, offering our studio partners the same focus and attention in Europe as we currently offer here in North and South America.”
The acquisition is an integral step in Maximum Games’ future growth strategy and brings together the unique strengths of two commanding companies to deliver the highest level of console and PC video games to consumers around the world.
“Becoming part of the Maximum Games family is a perfect fit for us,” said Steve Powell, Managing Director of Avanquest Software Publishing Ltd. “Maximum Games has experienced exceptional growth and has an ethos and long-term vision that’s shared by us.”
The primary operational headquarters of Maximum Games will remain in Walnut Creek, CA, where the video game publisher has been based since its 2009 founding.
