Nexon and developer Respawn Entertainment announced today that the two companies have partnered to create several new and original smartphone and tablet games based on the expansive sci-fi universe of Titanfall. In connection with the partnership, the two companies jointly invested in mobile game developer, Particle City, the studio leading the development of the upcoming titles.
In this multi-game, multi-year partnership, Nexon will serve as the exclusive global publisher of the Titanfall mobile games, with the first game expected to be released worldwide on iOS and Android in 2016. The collaboration is Nexon’s latest in a series of global partnerships. Recently, Nexon also announced a deal with Respawn and EA to bring a Free-to-Play version of Titanfall to Asia.
Particle City was co-founded by industry veteran Larry Pacey and Respawn CEO Vince Zampella in 2015. Particle City, co-located with Respawn in Los Angeles, is currently hiring top talent. Through the partnership, Nexon and Respawn will build on Titanfall’s franchise to deliver a high-quality game experience to the $30 billion mobile gaming market, the largest gaming platform globally.
