Kirkland game developer sold

Posted by Kim Peterson at 11:10 AM

Kirkland video game developer Amaze Entertainment has been sold to Foundation 9 Entertainment of Newport Beach, Calif.

Foundation 9 says it's now the largest independent game developer in the world, with 725 employees in 11 studios across the country. There will be no layoffs in Kirkland, in fact Amaze's CEO says the company will probably be hiring.

The acquisition price wasn't announced. Amaze has three studios in Kirkland, and has mainly been working on games for handheld players like Nintendo's DS and Sony's PSP.

More details in our story today.
