According to a form D SEC filing submitted today by Zynga, it appears that the gaming giant paid at least $6.3 million for recently acquired video game developer Bonfire Studios. We reached out to Zynga and they would not comment on the filing, which indicated that the company sold over $6 million in stock.
Zynga’s been on a buying spree over the past few months but we rarely get glimpses of how much Zynga pays for its acquisitions as the company is usually tight-lipped about how much it spends on each studio. And there could have been additional cash involved, which would not be disclosed in this filing. Earlier this year, another filing indicated that the company paid at least $20.5 million for Austin gaming studio Challenge Games.
