Quepasa, one of the world’s largest Latino social networks online, has acquired Brazilian social game developer XtFt Games owner of TechFront.
The acquisition of XtFt will allow its team of 41 full-time game developers to focus on developing culturally relevant social gaming IP for the Quepasa platform and other social networks with audiences in Latin America.
