Paris, April 15th, 2020 – Gameloft, leader in the development and publishing of games, is thrilled to celebrate the major milestone of Gameloft’s 20th Anniversary! Founded in Paris, France at the beginning of the new millennium in 2000 and initially built to bring video games to mobile devices, Gameloft today stands as a multiplatform developer for mobile, PC, consoles, and more. Gameloft further cements its status as a member of an exclusive pantheon of game publishers and developers who helped create the mobile games market from nearly the beginning, and is proud to look back and acknowledge the influences it has made on the gaming industry at large. With 20 years of history, almost 800 games, and a bright future ahead, Gameloft aims to push the boundaries for years to come.

“Twenty years is quite the accomplishment, so much so that it gives us pause to reflect,” said Alexandre de Rochefort, Chief Finance Officer of Gameloft since 2000. “This is a moment of celebration for us, a moment to look back and see how the industry has changed and evolved, to remember the beginning of simpler games for simpler phones and to appreciate the future of powerful platforms and new technology our developers can push to the limit. I’m proud to say we were there at the beginning and that we helped shape what this industry is today.”
