Mixed reality firm Magic Leap has acquired mobile games developer FuzzyCube Software and hired a number of staff from animation outfit Moonbot Studios to bolster its development team.
FuzzyCube Software is known for games such as BoomTown!! and iQuarterback 2. It was reportedly acquired back in spring of 2016 for an undisclosed sum.
Business Insider reports that the FuzzyCube team knew Magic Leap's Chief Creative Officer, Graeme Devine, from having worked together at Apple. It continues to work out of Dallas as part of Magic Leap's content group.
The Moonbot hires were made following an unsuccessful acquisition bid in late 2016. Magic Leap then brought on twelve of its staff of animators and artists.
Moonbot then suffered a round of layoffs, and eventually dissolved entirely. Two of its Co-Founders, Lampton Enochs and Brandon Oldenburg, are now starting up a new VR and AR developer called Flight School.
Co-Founder William Joyce however has re-established Moonbot Studios anew in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Magic Leap has been fairly quiet since it decloaked in February 2015. Some form of its mixed-reality headset is expected to launch by the end of 2017.
