Anuman Interactive announced these days that it is altering its name to Microids, a move signalling a large year for the French game publisher.
Microids will also be opening an workplace in Japan, a nation that the business has discovered achievement in with games like the racing title Gear.Club Limitless for Switch in 2017, which Microids notes was the very best-promoting racing game in Japan that year. This new workplace will also enable Microids efforts to expand globally.
Microids is the name of a developer that Anuman Interactive acquired in 2009. The studio is possibly very best identified for the 2002 adventure game Syberia.
“Our business name adjust will permit us to reinforce our positioning as a video game publisher prepared to release ambitious titles on present and subsequent gen platforms,” Eric Nguyen, vice president of promoting at Microids, told GamesBeat.
5 years ago, the business changed its technique away from focusing on casual game for mobile to generating double-A experiences for consoles, like Gear.Club Limitless. The new Japan studio could also help Microids’ efforts in the retro gaming field.
“Today, we are experiencing a substantial development which enables us to grow to be far more ambitious.” Nguyen told GamesBeat. “The opening of an workplace in Japan will certainly enable us to uncover some iconic IPs.”
