“Desura’s talented team, thriving business, and impressive technology are a great fit for Linden Lab,” CEO of Linden Lab, Rod Humble said in a statement. “This acquisition gives us a global platform for serving creative developers of all kinds, and we’re looking forward to growing both Desura’s global community of gamers and its fantastic portfolio of thousands of games, mods, and other content.
