Razer has announced that the gaming peripheral company has acquired OUYA’s digital platform assets and content. It was also announced that the former OUYA team will join Razer.
“Razer has a long-term vision for Android TV and Android-based TV consoles, such as the Xiaomi Mi Box and Alibaba Tmall Box, to which OUYA already publishes,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan.
“OUYA’s work with game developers, both triple A and indies, went a long way in bringing Android games to the living room and Razer intends to further that work. This acquisition is envisaged to usher more developers and content to the Android TV platform.”
Razer previously pledged a dedication to the Android gaming platform by announcing the Razer Forge TV system. CEO Min-Liang Tan will be hosting an Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Razer Insider 8PM PDT, July 30. (1PM AEST, July 31) if you’re keen to learn more about the acquisition.
