Candy Crush Creator in Line for Staggering £3bn Share Launch

By Gary Cutlack on at

King, the company behind Candy Crush and a handful of other significantly less popular mobile titles, has filed paperwork in the US suggesting it's about to go public on the stock market. A share sale could value the mobile publisher at an insane $5bn.

King has filed the same private forms as Twitter recently submitted ahead of its share placing, suggesting shares in the casual developer may hit the US Nasdaq index within months. Given King only has one smash game, and public tastes can swing pretty quickly, this might be a great thing to buy into if you want to see your money float away in the latest tech bubble. [Telegraph]
