Amazon has confirmed an acquisition in the area of gaming. The company has acquired GameSparks- a cloud-based game development platform for an undisclosed sum.

GameSparks announced the acquisition in a blog post. The company notes, “We’re excited to announce that GameSparks has been acquired by Amazon. GameSparks has long shared Amazon’s passion for helping developers create amazing gaming experiences, so it’s a natural fit. Being part of Amazon means we’ll continue to grow the service, as well as explore new ways to unlock the power of Amazon to help you build, operate, and monetize your games.”

The acquisition was reported back in July last year for a sum of $10 million. But neither Amazon nor GameSparks confirmed the deal.


GameSparks was co-founded by Griffin Parry (CEO), Gabriel Page (CTO) and John Griffin (COO). The company lets game developers build “server-side capability” for their games by way of APIs and a cloud-based coding tool, and then manage those features after they are launched.

GameSparks offers cross-platform compatibility and supports all major engines and stores including Unreal, Unity, PS4, XBOX, iOS, Google Play and Steam. Rovio, Ubisoft, Square Enix and Bandai Namco, as well as independent developers, are customers. GameSparks handles PC, Mobile and Console games.
