Deep Silver Eyes Mobile Market
Everybody wants to be in mobile. And while a recent study shows that most developers make only $500 a month off of paid apps, that hasn't stopped the gold rush mentality.
The latest prospector is Deep Silver, maker of the open-world zombie shooter "Dead island." The company, which just acquired the rights to "Saint's Row" during the first stage of THQ's bankruptcy, tells pocketgamer.biz that it plans to advertise several mobile jobs "soon." "Nowadays, gaming can play a role anywhere and anytime... at home or on the go," says Koch Media and Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz. "It is therefore only logical to extend the brand universe of a game to different devices. Having a brand strategy that is multi-platform - including mobile - offers a full, all-round experience that enables players to enjoy different aspects of a game world wherever and whenever they want."
While no timetable has been set or game announced I can already hear the sounds of prospectors setting up camp.
