As you’ve no doubt seen yesterday, Facebook has announced a new UI for Android devices, Facebook Home and Kabam was quick to comment on that.
As Kabam has been very active on both the Android and Facebook gaming platforms, launching games like Kingdoms of Camelot (which just surpassed $200 million in revenue) and The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age, as well as Android titles like the Arcane Empires and the upcoming Fast & Furious 6 mobile game (Kabam currently has two of the Top 20 grossing games on the Google Play store, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth at #13 and Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North at #17), we’re in a very unique position to speak on the announcement.
Kabam’s VP of Corporate Communications, Steve Swasey, has issued the following statement concerning the announcement:
“Facebook changed the way the world socializes. Now they’ve come up with a clever way to put people, not apps, first on Android phones. For gamers, the Chat Head feature is particularly awesome — it’s a great way to interact with both your gamer and non-gamer friends without losing your place in the game. It’s kind of like when someone walks in the room when you’re playing. No disruption. Continued immersion.”
