Electronic Arts has chosen GigaMedia to operate EA Mythic’s MMORPG Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning in Taiwan.
The agreement will also make GigaMedia responsible for the launch and operation of the game in Hong Kong and Macau.
In collaboration with EA Mythic, GigaMedia will handle marketing, community management, technical support and customer service for Warhammer Online in the region.
EA previously worked with GigaMedia to operate NBA Street Online in the same territories in a 2007 agreement.
Warhammer Online is expected to launch in North America and Europe later this year.
"It is a privilege to work with GigaMedia to bring our game to Asia’s vibrant and growing population of MMORPG fans”, said Mark Jacobs, VP and GM of EA Mythic. “Warhammer Online is widely anticipated in both North America and Europe. With Giga Media as a partner, we expect that Asian gamers will have a lot to look forward to.”
