Kabam continues to narrow focus, offloading old mobile titles to Gaea Mobile

San Francisco-based developer Kabam has sold off a number of its games to Chinese mobile publisher Gaea Mobile in an effort to focus its efforts on its bigger titles.

This is according to Gamasutra, who report that Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth, and Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs of the Dragon have been sold alongside a handful of other third-party developed titles.

In an interview with VentureBeat, Kabam's COO, Kent Wakeford, stated that "from a management perspective, we don’t want to split our focus. We don’t think that is the way to really succeed."

"We want to put the smartest people on the biggest opportunities. Supercell is a great example. It’s about being able to create franchises that last years and years."

This could also explain why the developer canned Marvel United in December 2015, as it looks to focus on its already successful Marvel: Contest of Champions, its fastest game to generate $100 million in revenue.
