Giant Interactive has been acquired by Testronic Labs, a global QC and localization company providing services to publishers and developers around the world.
According to a July 28 press release from Testronic, “this move will enable
Giant Interactive to greatly expand their capacity and services domestically and internationally. Together, we will make a significant investment in people and infrastructure. The result of this acquisition will immediately create a bigger, stronger company that can meet the increasing demands of our clients to deliver more content to a growing number of streaming platforms domestically and internationally.”
Expansion of facilities in both New York and Burbank are already underway, according to the release, as is the establishment of a content delivery services branch in Warsaw, where Testronic has an office with more than 800 people.
Jeff Stabenau, the founder and president of Giant Interactive, said, “We have partnered with Testronic on many projects over the years and know them to be a high-end company that executes to perfection. This expansion will enable Giant to better serve our clients throughout the U.S. and internationally, transforming Giant Interactive into a truly global provider.”
Giant Pictures, Giant Interactive’s content distribution company, will continue to operate as a separate stand-alone business and is not a part of this deal.
