Ideaworks3D splits into game and technology companies
Ideaworks Labs will focus on its cross-platform native Airplay SDK, while Ideaworks Game Studio will create digitally-distributed games for platforms such as iPhone, PSPgo, DSi, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, WiiWare and smartphones.
"Ideaworks has been licensing ground-breaking software products for over 10 years, to blue-chip companies including Intel, Autodesk, Nokia and Texas Instruments," said Alex Caccia, CEO Ideaworks Labs.
"Along the way, we formed an applications development capability that built a strong reputation for delivering high-quality native mobile games. With the two businesses now so well established, the time is right to make a formal separation and let each organisation pursue its own destiny."
Ideaworks Game Studio, which has worked with the likes of EA Mobile, Konami, and Capcom on key franchises including Metal Gear Solid, Need for Speed and The Sims, will be headed up by Rob Hendry.
Ideawork3D's CTO Tim Closs will take the same role at Ideaworks Labs.
