UK firm PQube has signed a new deal with developer Milestone to publish the next MotoGP title.
The company will handle MotoGP 13’s release in the UK and EMEA territories later this year.
It will be available on 360, PS3, PC and Vita. PQube CEO Dave Pain said: “We’ve enjoyed working with Milestone and seen that its titles can be very successful in the UK. MX Mud performed well and WRC3 has had phenomenal success at retail with over 50,000 units sold in the UK and still going strong. Key to this has been Milestone’s absolute passion for motorsport and their ability to translate that into games. Bringing together the MotoGP license with the quality of Milestone’s engine continues to raise the bar.”
Moto GP tites have previously been published by Capcom
Martine Saunders, Senior Product Manager at PQube added: “We implemented a lot of innovative marketing for WRC3 and this has paid off for us. Our direct contact with consumers through events, social networking, a dedicated iOs app and targeted media has allowed us to establish a significant customer database for motorsport."
"This gives us a strong platform to further build on for MotoGP, which will also be supported by an across-the-board mass market campaign with TV tie ins. We’re really looking forward to continuing our relationship with the developers, this is a solid IP and an extremely exciting product for us.”
