Gameloft?

Anyone have any insider information on that company?Are they still making new titles for mobile devices at all?I know Vivendi bought them recently and I was hoping that they would invest some serious cash into the company and we have faster game development(I was wrong ).

I have seen their press release kit stating they have a lot of games in development but some have already missed the targeted release schedule,so what exactly is going on in that company?

They're working on sequels to each of their main franchises, and an online zombie shooter thingy. There's a TA article and rumors around with leaked conceit art. There's three different asphalt versions being worked on too.

Are there any official dates for any of these games?Because for one of the Asphalt games it said like Q3 2016 if I remember right-shouldn't that mean it will come out by the end of September?It is just that Gameloft doesn't give us any news,they don't even have a PR guy to answer question on twitter anymore.

I really want to see new games from them especially ones with high graphical quality to take advantage of high end smartphones

Yep,he was the coolest PR person I have ever talked to.
It is a real shame he isn't working for Gameloft anymore,he knew how to handle the presenting of information from the company to the consumer.Very good at his job and a friendly person.

Oh..that is some very bad news.I guess they were not turning a profit which led to the buy from Vivendi.
If they wont make preemium games then they are off my list too.

They have stopped premium for a long time now, no?

Also, never was a fan of their work, but at last they have tried to push mobile power on early scenario, which deserve respect.

To be honest even MC5 at first was a premium title,then it went F2P so they haven't stopped doing premium for such a long time.
