Waysun takes the majority of Boss Bunny

Mobile gaming company becomes Waysun’s release arm for the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey

Waysun has acquired a majority stake in mobile game publisher and developer Boss Bunny Games for an undisclosed amount.

According to Pocket Gamer, the Dubai-based Boss Bunny will be Waysun’s release arm for the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.

Boss Bunny’s co-founder Geraint Bungay is stepping down from his role as CEO, with the mobile gaming company’s chairman Aziza Alhamadi taking over the role. Bungay remains a member of the Board of Directors.

Waysun is a US-based publisher and gaming service provider with offices in Canada, the United Kingdom, Israel and China.

Following the acquisition, CEO Aly Yip highlighted that MENAT has become an “important market in the global gaming industry.”

Alhamadi added: “The acquisition is a major boost to the gaming sector in the region as it will enable us to leverage Waysun’s advanced and integrated business systems in the MENAT region and beyond.”
