Halo Goes Mobile
In-Fusio has picked up global rights to mobile games based on Bungie’s
Halo. The company boss Gilles Raymond called the deal "enormous".
The company already has an agreement to work with Microsoft
on many of its game franchises. But this deal gives In-Fusio rights to
develop and publish a variety of downloadable and embedded mobile
applications based on the Halo universe.
Gilles Raymond, CEO of In-Fusio said, "The Halo franchise is an
enormous force, conquering consoles, PCs, online play and soon the big
screen. With us as the mobile partner, the brand will now expand its
reach to the millions of cell phone users around the world that make up
the mobile community."
"This partnership is first and foremost a creative one focused on
delivering mobile applications true to the Halo universe," said Julian
Corbett, VP of business development. "We are dedicated to expanding the
franchise in ways that will be exciting for existing fans as well as
delivering a fun and satisfying experience for a whole new audience."
The first Halo based mobile applications will be available later this
year via carriers in North America with other territories to follow.
