Fullscreen adds Texas-based video game media firm ScrewAttack
YouTube multi-channel network (MCN) Fullscreen has purchased video game media firm ScrewAttack, according to Variety. The financial terms of the acquisition deal were not disclosed in the said report.
ScrewAttack founder Craig Skistimas said of the deal: "Together with Fullscreen, we can amplify our efforts and interact with an even larger part of the videogame community to feature content that excites, pleases and entertains."
Under the terms of the said deal, Fullscreen's gaming hub Fullscreen Arcade will be renamed as the ScrewAttack Network. This network includes 14,000 gaming channels that pull in over 750 million views every month. In addition, ScrewAttack's eight-person team will become part of the Fullscreen workforce. However, its headquarters will still remain in Dallas after the integration is completed, the report detailed.
This transaction marks the second acquisition of Fullscreen. Just this January, the company acquired mobile video startup Supernova. Fullscreen's investors include Comcast Ventures, Chernin Group, and WPP, Variety reported.
