PLAYSTUDIOS was founded in 2011 and embarked on the development of casual, free-to-play games for social platforms. The company secured strategic investments from Activision Blizzard and MGM Resorts International, establishing relationships with two dominant players in industries related to the company’s line of business. The company opened studios in Las Vegas, Nevada; Burlingame, California; and Austin, Texas; then grew to build studios in Tel Aviv and Hong Kong.
In February 2021, PLAYSTUDIOS announced plans to become a public company, through a merger agreement with Acies Acquisition Corp (Nasdaq: ACAC), a publicly-traded special purpose acquisition company. The company is now listed on the Nasdaq exchange as PLAYSTUDIOS trading under the ticker symbol MYPS.
