Trion Worlds’ open-world shooter Defiance will be distributed by Namco Bandai in key territories outside of the US, bringing Namco’s extensive reach and brand credibility to the revolutionary MMO.
The partnership covers retail publishing rights in Europe, Middle-East, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand which will ensure Defiance will be seen on the shelves of high street outlets rather than existing as a digital only product.
“We’re delighted to be working with Namco Bandai, a great company with a proven track record in bringing big games successfully to the market thanks to their great distribution network and excellent relationship with both high-street and online retailers,” Trion’s SVP and GM John Burns stated.
Namco Bandai’s European senior VP Olivier Comte added: “We are really looking forward to collaborate with Trion Worlds, a very dynamic company which develops high-quality and successful massively social games, on such an ambitious and exciting project which is Defiance.”
Defiance, which has gained notoriety for it’s links to the SyFy TV series of the same name will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PCs in April
