The US has always had a long wait for Milestone's games often receiving them months after Europe, but a new partnership means this may finally now be a thing of the past. Square Enix has acquired the rights to publish future Milestone games in North America and Latin America, starting with Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO on March 15th following its European release next week on January 29th.
Milestone will, as always, be handling development duties, while Square Enix will oversee distribution and marketing in both territories.
"Milestone’s distinguished track record of creating superior racing games gives us an excellent opportunity not only to expand and diversify our game portfolio but also to introduce these remarkable games to a broader audience," Mike Silbowitz, Senior Director of Marketing at Square Enix commented. "We’re confident that North American and Latin American players will embrace these exciting and competitive games."
"Partnering with Square Enix, a world-renowned and respected industry leader with a vast wealth of expertise and resources will allow us to better reach our dedicated and enthusiastic fans and ensure a successful partnership. We look sharing our passion for four and two wheels with a larger audience," Milestone VP Luisa Bixio added.
