UK publisher Eidos has acquired mobile and casual games developer Morpheme Wireless.

The studio will become part of the rapidly expanding Eidos New Media division, as it acquires eight of Morpheme's staff and all of its assets.

"This is a really exciting opportunity for both Morpheme and Eidos," commented Matt Spall, CEO of Morpheme.

"It will allow us the opportunity to take our experience, talent and creativity and elevate it to the next level and to a much wider consumer audience."

Morpheme has previously worked on a mobile version of Hitman for Eidos, and in 2005 won a BAFTA for the title Bluetooth Biplanes

"We've worked with Morpheme on a number of successful games already, so we know how well we work together," commented Simon Protheroe, new media director at Eidos.

Last month, Eidos' parent company SCi acquired distribution specialist Bluefish Media, and in February snapped up casual studio Rockpool Games.
