The Other Guys' large and engaged audience and their unique approach of gaming production similar to TV shows further complete our expertise in game-narrative segment and expands our portfolio to TV-like experiences," said Gameloft CEO Stéphane Roussel.
"We are excited to welcome The Other Guys as a part of the Gameloft family and to support them in their journey to elevate the interactive series genre to the next level."
