Download specialist developer and publisher, Gameloft, has had a good start to the year, with consolidated sales of €76.8 million in the first half of 2011, up by 15 per cent from the previous year.
At a time where the more traditional games companies, such as Nintendo, have been struggling, Gameloft’s focus on smartphone and tablet gaming seems to be paying dividends. Gameloft’s first-half sales on smartphones and tables grew by 55 per cent year on year and now represents almost a third (30 per cent) of Gameloft’s total sales.
In a release the company has already suggested that it is looking closely at social networks, smart TVs and the next generation of set-top boxes as future opportunities.
Fans of this company’s approach to making games can look forward to around 20 more games before the year’s end.
