Kalypso Media Creates Mobile Division
Bracknell, UK – 3 rd April 2014 – Kalypso Media has today announced a newly created sister company within the Kalypso Media Group. Kalypso Media Mobile GmbH, based in Berlin, will focus on creating mobile entertainment for iOS and Android platforms for tablets and/or smartphones with at least three games scheduled to release in 2014.
“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“ commented Simon Hellwig, Global Managing Director of Kalypso.
The first product will be announced very soon and Stefan Marcinek, Global Managing Director added: “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“.
Kalypso will also announce the responsible executives at Kalypso Mobile very soon – interested candidates in publishing, mobile marketing and mobile producing are welcome to send their CV to email@example.com .
