EA and Jamdat Seal the Deal

Just days after Jamdat shareholders approved the $680 million acquisition by Electronic Arts, the two companies make it official.

And just like that, EA is the world’s leading wireless entertainment publisher.

Former Jamdat CEO Mitch Lasky will be taking the reins as senior VP of EA Mobile, and Michael Marchetti has been named VP and COO.

"Today is a great day for mobile game players worldwide," Lasky said. "The EA Mobile portfolio of titles now features the best in class of leisure, sports and action games – all built on state-of-the art technology. Our combined management, sales and creative teams will allow us to innovate and grow the mobile games category worldwide."
