SOE Acquires PoxNora from Octopi

Sony Online Entertainment has unleashed a tidal wave of a development on everyone. Seems that over the weekend, they decided to purchase PoxNora, an online collectible strategy game.

"Our strategy and trading card games have been successful beyond our wildest dreams," said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. "Expanding with a great product like PoxNora and the outstanding development team from Octopi gives us a chance to extend our strategy game offerings and enhance the ones we already field."

Hopefully, they will be able to put out some interesting releases with the help of the new studio. Sony could always use more clout. We hope they enjoy the Tucson weather. Read the full press release after the jump.
