According to Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari, the company hopes to leverage 6waves track record as a successful social games publisher to bring Atari’s world-renowned game franchises to social networks in the near future. “Discoverability and user acquisitions are ever-increasing challenges facing social games today, so partnering with 6waves was the logical choice for us,” Wilson said.
Earlier this month 6waves shared news of re-focusing the company on publishing social and mobile games as well as increasing traction in China.
“The momentum that we have gained in both mobile and social in 2012 should send a clear signal to the industry: we are committed to continuing our growth,” said Jim Ying, SVP Publishing of 6waves in the press statement. “2012 will see our portfolio expand significantly in all key genres. We couldn’t be happier to welcome so many exciting independent developers to our fold, as well as a powerhouse brand like Atari.”
Apart from a lot of Chinese developers there are quite a few Russian companies such as Game Insight, Drimmi and Chiwawa Games as well as UK-based Enteraction among the list of newly signed developers.
