CyberAgent Invests In Hong Kong-Based Gaming Company EpicForce [Social Games]

CyberAgent, through its subsidiary CyberAgent Ventures (Beijing) Investment Consulting Co., made yet another investment: this time, the company acquired a 25% stake in smartphone game maker EpicForcc Entertainment.

Details of the deal weren’t disclosed, but CyberAgent was apparently interested in the fact that EpicForce is based in Hong Kong (meaning it’s close to the Chinese market) and that its games (see an overview here) were downloaded over 12 million times so far.

EpicForce’s most famous game is probably iFighter 1945 for iOS ($0.99 in the App Store). The company was established in 2008.
