MONTREAL– (BUSINESS WIRE) –Valnet Inc., an online media publisher, has acquired GameRant.com, popular and authoritative media related news, reviews, and discussion.

Vic Holtreman, CEO and Founder of Warp 10 LLC, originally launched GameRant.com as a sister-site to ScreenRant.com in 2009 with the goal of applying SR's successful formula for editorialized news to serve the vertical video game with reviews, original insights, and informed analysis.

Commenting on the salt, Holtreman said, "Based on how Valnet has grown Screen Rant, which I sold to them on 2015, and the fact that almost everyone who worked for me then is still with the site, tells me that Game Rant and my crew will be in good hands. I'm sure they grow to become more popular than ever. "

"Said the CEO of Valnet Inc., Hassan Youssef, commander Holtreman for his successful creation and management of Game Rant. "Combining the passion of the existing Valet has to offer, we expect GameRant.com to continue on a path to even greater success, "Youssef added.

Following the 2015 acquisition of ScreenRant, Holtreman continued to develop Game Rant on his own. Today's acquisition finally sees the reunification of sister sites as well as editors and writers who previously contributed to growth of both properties - including former Managing Editor, Ben Kendrick, who will serve as Publisher of Game Rant on behalf of Valnet.

Based in Montreal, Valnet has acquired and developed a variety of web properties in various consumer verticals. Game Rant will join Valnet's gaming vertical which already includes TheGamer.com in addition to other properties including movie news authority ScreenRant.com and pop culture site CBR.com. Valnet also has a burgeoning children's animated content brand with its LittleAngel YouTube channels. With the addition of Game Rant to Valnet's stable entertainment, the publisher expects to accelerate its competitive influence and take-on industry leaders, such as Polygon, Kotaku, and IGN, among others.
