Outspark Yet to Close Down as Management Decides Fate
ByDate: 02-10-2013 Views:
Gamigo Inc. has acquired substantial assets from the San Francisco based publisher, Outspark. The license of the successful online game, Fiesta Online, for the USA, Canada, and Mexico is to become a part of gamigo's extensive online games portfolio. While all of Outspark’s games have closed and the company’s websites are all down currently, CEO Philip Yun clarified the situation.
We’ve had a great time building up Outspark and gamigo will take the combined Fiesta to the next stage and build further onto the pioneer work that has been done by Outspark. We are happy to announce that also a substantial part of the team has joined gamigo, and will work from gamigo’s San Francisco office to manage and support the games.
Technically the company still exists, though between employee transitions to Gamingo and some necessary layoffs, it’s down to only a small core group deciding which direction the company will go.
Yun says that Outspark still has a few games — including an unannounced project — in its stable, which the remaining team and its board of directors are still deciding what to do with, whether that be moving forward with them and continuing operations at Outspark, or dissolving the company and selling (or perhaps canceling) them.
