TEL AVIV, Israel, August 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Overwolf, the leading platform for creation and distribution of gaming apps, announced today the acquisition of StatsRoyale.com, the largest service for players of the popular mobile game - Clash Royale. This acquisition is a first step in Overwolf's strategy to expand its PC offering into the mobile space.
Overwolf offers more than 200 apps for PC gamers, and has an active community of more than 230 developers. Developers use the Overwolf platform to build in-game apps for the leading PC games, distribute these apps through Overwolf Appstore and monetize with Overwolf's in-app ads service. Developers on the platform generate anywhere form tens of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars every month. Millions of gamers already use various Overwolf apps alongside their favorite games to enhance their experience and improve their gameplay.
The StatsRoyale.com website provides valuable information for the Clash Royale player community. StatsRoyale aggregates an unimaginable amount of data, and crunches it to provide statistical information about cards, decks and the current game meta. The website also reveals information about players' upcoming chests, thus eliminating uncertainty and giving players more motivation to keep playing. StatsRoyale.com has a huge following with more than 20 million monthly active players.
"I wasn't really a mobile gamer before Clash Royal," said Uri Marchand, Overwolf's co-founder and CEO. "Supercell's amazing execution on the game captured me completely, and I was actively thinking on how we could help the Clash Royale with tools and services. When I first heard of StatsRoyal.com through my 8 year old son, I became a fan. I felt that there's a very strong alignment between our core offering in Overwolf and StatsRoyal.com. Most importantly, I felt a perfect cultural alignment with the team that had built it, led by the talented Steve Rabouin, putting gamers first and thriving for a pixel-perfect user experience."
"The folks at Overwolf are on to something big," said Steve Rabouin, Stats Royale creator and now VP of Mobile Games Apps at Overwolf. "I really like Overwolf's vision to empower both players and developers. Overwolf's robust platform makes it easy for any developer to go from an idea about a game they're passionate about, to a published app with monetization capabilities in no-time. I have been building gaming websites for more than 10 years, and it feels to me that Overwolf is the evolution of gaming websites. The Overwolf team is made of gamers and developers so we share the same passions and I'm very excited to join the leadership team and help take Overwolf to the next level."
