Aeria Games announced that it is joining forces with Gamepot to form a global entity. The combined operation will accelerate the scaling of Aeria Games’ technology and Ignite distribution platform in four continents, adds mobile development capabilities in Japan and Korea, and provides a singular shop for developers looking to publish games in major international gaming markets.

“This strategic partnership further helps to cement our position as a truly global multi-platform publisher and developer,” said Lan Hoang, co-CEO of the new holding company. “We are adding significant mobile games and development resources while expanding our core PC publishing business and increasing international reach and resources to acquire and publish Triple-A titles. The combination strengthens every facet of our business — strong financials, global reach, a large and dedicated community of mid- to hard-core players, and a shared technology and distribution platform.”

“Gamepot will add development expertise for client-based games, such as the successful Wizardry and Paperman franchises, and its large mobile development teams in Japan and Korea to Aeria Games’ global platform,” said Hiroki Totoki, co-CEO of the holding company. “We have already started collaborating on co-development projects, leveraging our mobile resources, to bring high-quality games to the international markets.”
