Talking about this acquisition, Manish Agarwal, chief executive officer at Nazara Technologies said, “The company will be looking to build local execution capabilities across segments such as esports, gamified learning, and freemium models.” He further added that this move will also help investee companies of Nazara to expand in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Ozgur Ozalp, CEO of Publishme said, “With this acquisition, Publishme will become a full-fledged publisher in the MENA region which is one of the fastest-growing gaming markets in the world. MENA has a market size of $4.8 billion in total. Our alliance with Nazara provides us with a blend of a network, global reach, and well established local capabilities for the growth of the gaming industry in our region”

This is the first acquisition of Nazara after becoming India’s first and only publicly listed gaming company in March 2021. Nazara Technologies also holds a majority stake in Nodwin Gaming, Next Wave, multimedia developer of World Cricket Championship (WCC), and SportsKeeda.
