New strategies for Gaming Corps
At the annual general meeting on June 2nd a new board was elected with the focus to help the company in its challenges it’s facing the coming year. The board has since then been working hard to define a number of strategies and how to move the company forward.
The company has already started to broaden the portfolio, which was made easier due to the fact that The Descendant is out on the market. The Descendant gets high reviews from the players, which is considered important in discussions with potential partners in a work for hire deal. The company has also proven it can finish and ship a game, and that is important in such negotiations.
”We see that the company needs more legs to stand in order to be stable over a longer period of time and to be able to deliver good products and a better bottom line. Now that we have added new competencies to the company, we have a better chance of doing that.” – Claes Tellman.
The board have given management the task of examining the organization and see if there are any streamlining and cost reductions to be made in order to handle upcoming opportunities.
