Ankama to sign distribution agreement with Bigpoint
Wakfu will be available through the gaming platform in Germany and Turkey
Ankama today announces that they have entered a partnership agreement for the publishing of Wakfu by Bigpoint. The client MMO game will be available through Bigpoint's vast partner network exclusively in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in November and in Turkey later this year.
The launch of Wakfu via the new Bigpoint Publishing platform will give millions of players the opportunity to play the game through their preferred gaming platforms and with their preferred local payment methods.
"Wakfu is a great addition to Bigpoint´s overall portfolio which allows us to offer another high quality game to our audience." says Marcus Behrens, Head of Publishing at Bigpoint. "Bigpoint's knowledge of online gaming and digital distribution makes them a natural partner for Ankama," declares Olivier Comte, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer at Ankama.
Wakfu was first released in 2012 and rapidly developed a loyal global following that is still growing today. The anime-style universe of Wakfu is infused with humor throughout, from the charming interactions to its tactical combat, belying the complex political and economic systems at its heart.
The release of Wakfu by Bigpoint in Germany, Austria and Switzerland is scheduled for November and in Turkey later this year.
