agreement with Ubisoft to integrate Anno Online
and The Settlers
directly into gamigo. Here's how this will work:
multiplayer online games are close to getting integrated directly into
gamigo.com, allowing registered gamigo users to play these titles for free.
Revenue will be generated via the sale of digital items in the game. The
proceeds will then be distributed among Ubisoft and gamigo. This cooperative
effort will begin with the titles "Anno Online" and "The Settlers Online" from
Blue Byte, an Ubisoft studio.
"We very much look forward to working together with gamigo in future. This
partnership is an entirely new model, for which we have high expectations," says
Geoffroy Sardin, Sales and marketing VP at Ubisoft. "Thanks to the great
selection and wide array of choices in the marketing of online games, as well as
the substantial number of potential customers in this sector, gamigo AG is an
ideal partner for us."
