Nitro Games signs Mobile game publishing agreement with Wargaming
The parties have signed a mobile game publishing agreement related to the earlier game development agreement signed in May 2017.
Nitro Games has signed a new deal with industry-leading free-to-play game company Wargaming World Limited (“Wargaming”). This new agreement is a natural next step after the earlier game development agreement between the parties.
The estimated value of the new deal for Nitro Games is 1,35 million EUR during 2018 before the Commercial Launch. After the Commercial Launch Nitro Games will receive profit share based on the commercial success of the game and a monthly development fee to be agreed later on between the parties.
With this agreement, Wargaming has the exclusive rights to publish the game, including marketing and promotion. Nitro Games acts as the developer of the game and delivers live operation content. The agreement term is 5 years from Commercial Launch. The Soft Launch is aimed to start summer 2018, and the Commercial Launch of the game is expected to happen after that on a date to be determined by Wargaming.
