Deep Silver Goes Mobile

26 February 2013 - Hampshire, UK/... Deep Silver today revealed plans to expand its brands into the mobile gaming market in the coming year, as part of its overall publishing strategy.

Deep Silver has already proven its expertise in leading titles to success on stationary platforms, both worldwide and locally. Now, the publisher is further expanding its experience into the mobile market.

Along with this new strategic direction, Deep Silver has also disclosed its intention to invest and build up resources and manpower in the mobile space in order to acquire and further develop existing knowledge in the company. Over the course of the next months, several job openings will become available in connection with the strategic mobile market focus, focusing on development, sales, and marketing.

"Nowadays, gaming can play a role anywhere and anytime... at home or on the go. It is therefore only logical to extend the brand universe of a game to different devices. Having a brand strategy that is multi-platform - including mobile - offers a full, all-round experience that enables players to enjoy different aspects of a game world wherever and whenever they want," explains Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media / Deep Silver, with reference to the company's mobile strategy.

"In the near future, our cross-platform approach will allow us to promote our games from new angles, because we will have a whole group of games connected to a brand on different platforms," adds Menno van der Bil, Commercial Director of Deep Silver. "Players of our upcoming mobile titles can expect the same level of originality and innovativeness that they already know from our existing products."
