FriendFinder Launches Tablet Games Studio (With A Cool Name)

Internet holding company FriendFinder Networks, which operates a number of adult, social networking, dating and e-commerce websites, has quietly established a game development subsidiary back in 2010.

Today, the company said that the studio, which is called Fierce Wombat Games, will be releasing its first title for Mac, PC and iOS in early 2012.

Based in San Jose, CA, the studio is led by Graeme Bayless, a former exec at companies like Groove Media, 2K Games and Namco.

The studio’s mission, straight from Boss Wombat’s mouth: “to build and publish games as compelling and fun as the classics that drew all of us into games”. We’ll wait and see.
