Earlier this year, Motiga, the developer of the upcoming MOBA Gigantic, suffered layoffs that put the game’s future into question. Today, it was announced that Perfect World Entertainment will be publishing the game for Xbox One, Windows 10, and Arc. Chris Chung, CEO of Motiga, detailed the partnership on the company’s site.
This partnership is a huge step for Motiga, as it allows us to continue working towards realizing the vision the development team had for Gigantic – a great competitive online game. Even more so, it accelerates opportunities for Gigantic by having more resources available to us. One of the biggest is being worked on already: an opportunity to bring Gigantic to as many versions of Windows as possible. That’s right; we’re developing a version of the game that will be playable on every 64-bit Windows operating system. This version will be made available through Perfect World’s Arc games platform, which is available on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Furthermore, the 64-bit version of Gigantic will be released on the same day as the Xbox One and Windows 10 App Store versions. This will help us introduce Gigantic to a larger audience much quicker than we originally anticipated!
The website for Gigantic also posted a new trailer officially announcing the partnership.
