Rollic, a Zynga subsidiary, announced that it's purchased mobile game developer Popcore.

Founded in 2018 by Thomas and Johannes Heinze, the studio has released titles such as Pull the Pin, Scavenger Hunt, and Tap Away.

With the acquisition Rollic continues to grow its hypercasual game offerings.

"Combining allows us to build more gaming experiences that emphasize meaningful, lasting engagement," said Rollic CEO Burak Vardal.
