New Mobile Games Studio Launches
Verterans of Gameloft and Activision join forces
Industry verterans formerly of Gameloft and Activision are joining together to create Massively Mobile, a new mobile game development studio. The company has developed a proprietary engine that will highlight the distinctive and unique advantages of the mobile platform, offering players new experiences that cannot be found on other platforms. Specific details of the engine were not outlined.
"For too long, the mobile platform has been treated as the red-headed stepchild of 'real' gaming," says founding member and Creative Director, Demetri Detsaridis. "What we're excited about doing with Massively Mobile is breaking out of this pattern and starting to utilize the full potential of these ubiquitous networked devices. We consider mobile gaming not just an avenue to release miniature versions of console or PC games, but a viable part of a larger gaming ecosystem...one with its own tremendous strengths that differ from those of other platforms, but that can be used to complement them in some amazing ways."
From wireless to console, Massively Mobile's core development team has developed and delivered hit games on virtually every gaming platform available, including titles such as Asphalt 3D and Midnight Hold 'Em Poker (mobile), True Crime: Streets of L.A. (PS2/Xbox), and Teen Titans: Battle Blitz (PC).
