EA puchases GameFly’s cloud streaming service

In an announcement today, EA reveals it has acquired GameFly’s cloud streaming service. All of GameFly’s technology, assets and personnel have been snapped up by EA in the acquisition which will now join EA’s central teams.

Through the acquisition of GameFly, EA will be likely looking to expand its reach in the game streaming market and reach more players on more devices and services. GameFly launched its service on the Amazon Fire device in 2015.

GameFly streaming is now available on Samsung and LG Smart TVs, EMTEC GEM Box and the Amazon Fire TV and TV stick.

The service, which costs $10 USD per month, gives subscribers unlimited access to a rotating roster of games, with new additions being included all the time. EA’s acquisition of the service will undoubtedly see an increase in EA’s titles appearing on the service.

GameFly will join EA’s core technology group which is responsible for development and operation of all of EA’s games, platforms and services.

GameFly is not yet available in Australia, but it is available in the locations listed below.
