Chimera Entertainment will develop a high-end mobile game on behalf of Deep Silver, renowned publisher of acclaimed AAA brands such as Dead Island, Saints Row, Homefront and Metro.
Hamburg/Munich, June 24th, 2015 – Munich-based developer studio Chimera Entertainment and Hamburg-based mobile publisher Deep Silver FISHLABS concluded an agreement regarding the development and marketing of an upcoming mid- to hardcore mobile game. While Chimera Entertainment takes over the development of the new title, Deep Silver FISHLABS is in charge of the respective production, marketing and live operation processes. Besides the internal development of AAA games such as Galaxy on Fire 2 HD, the publishing of selected titles by external developers marks an additional business segment of Deep Silver’s mobile games division.
Originally founded in 2006, Chimera Entertainment quickly made a name for itself as a successful player in the global mobile gaming market. Recently the studio developed the mobile RPG bestseller Angry Birds Epic in cooperation with Rovio.
“Chimera Entertainment have been around for almost a decade now,“ says Andreas Stecher, Director of Business Development and Sales at Deep Silver FISHLABS. “And during their time in the industry they have proved their creativity and keen eye for captivating game concepts over and over again. We could not think of a better partner for this project and we are looking forward to a successful cooperation with one of the strongest developers of Germany’ flourishing game development scene.“
Senior Producer Christian Braun adds: “Our partnership with Chimera Entertainment strengthens our product portfolio by adding another important component in the AAA mobile segment. I am looking forward to bundle up the competencies of both studios for this exciting project and I am sure that the result will leave our players stunned.“
“We are convinced that we can achieve something outstanding together with Deep Silver FISHLABS,“ says Christian Kluckner, CEO of Chimera Entertainment. “Producing an AAA mobile title with a local partner is a fantastic opportunity, especially since Deep Silver FISHLABS has a game development background themselves. As such, they are well aware of the requirements and needs during the development of a game.“
The release of the unannounced mobile game is planned for 2016.
