Bigben to Publish Tour de France and Pro Cycling Manager

Bigben shows off their shiny new two-wheelers, announcing they now own the publishing rights for Tour de France and Pro Cycling Manager. This seems like a natural outgrowth of last year's announcement that they acquired Cyanide Studio, developer of each of these bicycle racing games. They discuss the new acquisition, and promise details on the 2019 installments in each series over the coming months:

Following the arrival of the development studio Cyanide to the group and a partnership signed with A.S.O, Bigben is pleased to announce it is adding the Tour de France and Pro Cycling Manager franchises to its games catalogue.

Every year the latest editions of Tour de France and Pro Cycling Manager allow cycling fans to enter the new stages of the world's most famous cycling races and take their teams to glory.

"Sports games have always been an important part of Bigben's catalogue. We are therefore extremely happy to be publishing these top cycling games, which will strengthen our publishing foothold," explained Benoît Clerc, Head of Publishing at Bigben Interactive.

"Tour de France and Pro Cycling Manager are long-established franchises from our studio and are eagerly anticipated by a growing number of fans every year. We are therefore delighted that we will benefit from Bigben's sports sim expertise in 2019," said Patrick Pligersdorffer, CEO of Cyanide.

Christian Prudhomme, Director of the Tour de France, organized by A.S.O, added: "The Tour de France is the ultimate popular sports event. The race goes where the people are, passes in front of houses and is the stuff of dreams. The Tour de France game prolongs the real race experience. It is universally accessible and allows everyone to enter the universe of the world's biggest cycling race and become a virtual participant."

With Tour de France, players relive the best moments and step into the shoes of the world's top cyclists on the official route of the most famous cycling race on the planet. And they need to choose the best tactics if they are to win the yellow jersey, including attack strategy, trajectory and energy management.

In Pro Cycling Manager on PC, players become the manager of a team of professional cyclists. In this role, they must manage all aspects of team life and take part in over 200 races (and over 500 stages) around the world, including major events such as La Vuelta and the iconic Tour de France.

More details for both games will be shared in the coming months.
