UK roost for Gamecock

Next-Gen reports that Gamecock plans to open a small UK office to help provide a PAL element to its publishing deals.

Founded earlier this year by former Gathering of Developers team Harry Miller and Mike Wilson, publisher Gamecock's activity - which puts the developer first and relegates the publishing role to mere distribution - has been building over recent months.

The new UK office is expected to be staffed by the end of the year.

“We’ll be so much better off having a presence over there and really controlling the marketing, PR and creative," Wilson told Next-Gen. "It’s mostly about us trying to give our developers the best deal we can across the PAL territories too. When doing a co-publishing deal, it’s really hard to do that.”
