UK game developer Bluprint Gaming has purchased fellow designer Livewire Gaming and will bring the group under their umbrella moving forward.
Terms of the deal weren't made available, but the two groups have worked together for some time. Livewire has been developing games for Blueprint and the group specializes in creating slots for land-based casinos. The new subsidiary of Blueprint will continue to operate on an independent basis.
Blueprint itself is a subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group, and the company's UK general manager Sascha Blodau commented: "Livewire and Blueprint have had a close relationship for many years, so this merger makes perfect sense for both parties. We look forward to working with Livewire and building on our already successful partnership."
Blueprint has been making a series of purchases over the past year, picking up the likes of Games Warehouse and Project Coin to add to their library.
