On April 18, 2019, Keywords Studios has acquired Wizcorp Inc.
This acquisition by Keywords Studios is a culmination of thorough, strategic discussions during which Wizcorp’s direction team has gotten to interact and know key members of Keywords Studios. We are extremely happy to be joining such a knowledgeable and experienced team and believe that this partnership will turn both Wizcorp and Keywords into a powerhouse in Japan.
Keywords Studios provides a variety of technical services to the global gaming and entertainment industry. Their service lines include Art, Audio, Localization, Localization QA, Functionality QA, Engineering and Player Support. The company currently has 50 studios in 20 countries on 4 continents and employs over 5,000 people. Their services are being used by the 25 top gaming companies, and 8 out of the 10 top mobile games publishers by revenue.
This acquisition creates a match made in heaven; while Wizcorp will enable Keywords a new level of access to the Japanese market, Keywords will enable Wizcorp to outsource portions of larger projects while still remaining competitive.
And more importantly, we are joining a group of like-minded studios and individuals who values their customers as much as we do. We believe this cultural kinship will help us feel right at home within Keywords Studios.
We would like to thank Chris Kennedy, Managing Director for Asia, for working with us throughout the acquisition and giving us an introduction to the world of Keywords Studios.
This is the beginning of a new adventure for us, and we are looking forward to working with everyone!
