Social games company RockYou has acquired Australian developer 3 Blokes, with the team working on combat and strategy games for Facebook.
3 Blokes was set up in 2006 and has developed four titles for Facebook including Galactic Trader, which claims 200,000 monthly active users. The team is lead by George Fidler, who has previously worked for EA and The Creative Assembly.
"We were drawn to RockYou's commitment to design-driven teams, and to bringing great games to the broadest Facebook market possible," said Fidler. "Being a RockYou Studio enables us to maintain our independence and innovate freely as we work to redefine the concept of a social game."
