JoWood Wants to Brings its Franchises to Consoles

by Rainier on April 26, 2007 @ 6:11 a.m. PDT

JoWooD decided to take the next step and advance to the current generation of consoles as it intends to publish the group's most successful brands ion 2008/2009 on the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii.

Due to the Dreamcatcher buyout, the Austrian Publisher has many brands at hand for expansion on to the “new” current generation of consoles (Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3). After the great worldwide success of our products Gothic, SpellForce, Painkiller and Dungeon Lords it’s a pleasure for JoWooD to release further content on current-gen systems. JoWooD is convinced of its ability to successfully position the new games in the console market. The Console-market is one of the fastest growing segments of the entertainment industry with approximately 11 million units of Xbox 360 and 3,5 millions of the PS3 sold so far.

JoWooD already started to negotiate with development studios and scheduled the first releases at the end of 2008, beginning of 2009.
