Jam City & Disney Announce Multi-Year Mobile Game Team-Up

Mobile entertainment company Jam City has entered a multi-year mobile game development partnership with Disney, which will include Jam City taking over the popular matching and collecting game Disney Emoji Blitz. Members of Disney’s Glendale games studio will join Jam City to continue operating and growing this title, while Jam City develops new games based on iconic Disney and Pixar stories and characters, starting with a tie-in to next year’s holiday release Frozen 2.

“Jam City is proud to be teaming with Disney,” said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City. “Disney is the world’s leader in beloved characters and brands that have engaged generations of fans for decades. Jam City’s leadership in mobile entertainment based on iconic entertainment IP, makes our company an ideal partner to develop a lineup of new mobile games with Disney’s most popular franchises.”

“While our licensing business for Disney Animation and Pixar games has grown over the last year and we have several top developers creating Disney games, this deal with Jam City represents a significant long-term opportunity for our games business and for the future slate of Disney and Pixar games,” said Kyle Laughlin, Senior Vice President of Games and Interactive Experiences at Disney. “We can’t wait to see how Jam City and the incredibly talented team behind Disney Emoji Blitz will grow the already successful game and franchise, and how Jam City will bring their global reach and expertise in developing successful, enduring mobile games to the upcoming titles.”

Jam City was founded in 2009 by MySpace co-founder DeWolfe and former 20th Century Fox exec Josh Yguado. The company has created some of the highest-grossing and most enduring social game franchises for mobile, including Facebook Game of the Year winner Cookie Jam and Panda Pop, as well as games based on major entertainment brands such as Harry Potter, Family Guy and Marvel’s Avengers. Jam City has studios in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Bogotá and Buenos Aires.
