The introduction of virtual reality (VR) to the gaming industry has added a new dimension by providing a simulated realm for gamers eager to experience an immersive and realistic experience. As such, several video game developers are entering into mergers and acquisitions with VR and Location-based Entertainment (LBE) technology providers to increase their respective market shares.

For example, in February 2021, Vertigo Games, a publisher and developer of VR games, has acquired Springboard VR, a VR site management software and content marketplace provider for LBE. The acquisition aimed to provide operators with access to VR content through Vertigo Games’ Haze VR distribution platform and to provide game studios and operators with new tools and technologies to grow their LBE business.

LBE services are offered in arcades, amusement parks and VR cafes, among other entertainment services. The integration of augmented reality (AR), VR, 3D animation and other immersive technologies with LBE is driving the growth of the location-based entertainment market.

LBE operators are focused on expanding their global footprint and gaining a competitive advantage over their rivals. For example, in September 2020, Koch Media GmbH, a video game company, acquired Vertigo Games to strengthen its global reach and network while opening up new publishing opportunities for itself and for Vertigo Games and its subsidiaries.
