"Our joining the Playrix team will give us access to the global market, large audiences and a base of knowledge and expertise that we have never had before," said Eipix CEO Mirko Topalski. "We believe that being a part of Playrix RS, we will contribute to the strengths of Playrix globally by working on new, unique and high-quality projects. Also, we are pleased that this deal will support the growth of our local Serbian gamedev community."

Playrix's popular match-3 title, Homescapes, recently reached $1 billion in lifetime revenue, while Gardenscapes sits well over $1.4 billion.
