Gameloft Becomes #1 Mobile Publisher Worldwide
Lofty expectations met
Sales increased to $38.5 million USD for Gameloft during the 4th Quarter holiday season, making them #1 worldwide mobile games publisher in the quarter.
With games like Assassin's Creed, Battle for the White House, Guitar Rock Tour and Prince of Persia, Gameloft saw an annual growth of 40%. They were already the #1 publisher in EMEA (business slang for Europe, the Middle East and Africa).
"We have been out-performing our competitors and growing faster than the market for quite a while now; our recent number one position only confirms this long-running trend," said Michel Guillemot, president, Gameloft. "This market will grow at a fast pace, with 4 billion consumers gaining access to our games by 2011. We will continue to strive for excellence and remain on the successful path that pushed us to #1 in Q4."
First EMEA and now the world; so what's next for Gameloft? Look for them to support more advance handheld devices such as the iPhone, Ngage/OVI and Google Android in 2008.
