NBA Legend developer Lionside may have been acquired recently, according to recent LinkedIn updates on several employee profiles.

Over the weekend, an ISG tipster pointed toward profiles for Lionside VP of Business Operations Michael McBride and European Account Manager Kane Curran that both list the company as “acquired by ngmoco.” Company CEO Brandon Boyer’s Google+ profile now says “Lionside & ngmoco marketing and product guy.” Lionside’s websiteis currently down and its Twitter account hasn’t been touched in over a year. Its largest Facebook game, NBA Legend, has been in steady decline for the past three months according to the AppData traffic tracking service. As of press time, the game is apparently down while being “enhanced,” while Lionside’s soccer sim is completely unreachable.

[Update: Well-placed readers in the industry have also confirmed the acquisition.]

Lionside did not respond to request for comment as of press time. Its last big activity was a $1.6 million round of funding raised in November of last year to put toward developing sports games for Facebook.
