Asmodee has bought the publisher of Catan, but what does that mean for the mobile versions of the game?

Asmodee keeps on growing. According to Polygon, it recently it purchased the games catalogue of Mayfair Games. If you know anything about board gaming, then you know that Mayfair is the publisher of Catan.

But that’s not all. Asmodee has also purchased Lookout Games. Its stable includes Agricola. So that’s two of the biggest names in board gaming that are now settled underneath the Asmodee banner.

What this is going to mean for digital distribution of Catan moving forwards isn’t clear yet.

There’ve been a number of different Settlers of Catan games out on mobile, from a variety of developers and publishers, but this could see Asmodee Digital bringing them all into the same wheelhouse. As it were.

Acquire me please

With these new acquisitions, Asmodee North America is on the verge of being the only name in board game publishing. It already owns Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and F2Z Entertainment, although those companies still trade under their own brands.

As soon as we have more information we’ll make sure and throw it in your direction. If you’ve got an opinion on Asmodee owning everything, then let us know in the comments.
