First title to be announced soon.
Kalypso Media is looking to expand into the mobile market with the launch of a new mobile division based in Berlin. Kalypso Media Mobile will be working on iOS and Android tablets and smartphones, with three games to release in 2014.
Simon Hellwig, Global Managing Director of Kalypso, stated that, “Kalypso has a lot of great IP, such as Tropico, Dungeons and Port Royale, within its portfolio and it is really about time to follow the trends of cross-platform-entertainment and cloud-gaming. Strategy and simulation games are especially under represented – specifically within the premium price-segment – at the moment. This is a fast growing market and we think, as a part of our product diversification strategy, our games and brands deserve to become playable anywhere, any time.”
Global Managing Director Stefan Marcinek also added that, “We are of course looking to port and/or re-design our own IP for mobile platforms such as tablets and smartphones, but we will also release new and innovative games and concepts that fit perfectly on these devices. In the beginning, we will of focus on paid content but we are also looking into the Free-to-Play model as this will also play an important role in our growth strategy“.
Stay tuned for updates, because Kalypso Media Mobile will be announcing their first title very soon.
