We just received the following press release from Bigpoint; they've teamed up with Square Enix and it sounds like they've got an exciting game in development. But it's so top-secret that they won't even release the title of the game!
San Francisco – April 5, 2012 – The online game provider Bigpoint and Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and across PAL territories have teamed up on an exciting new project.
The new game, which is already well into development at Square Enix, will be exclusively published and marketed by Bigpoint in Europe and North America. The title will be distributed on the Bigpoint.com portal, as well as by other media partners. Focusing heavily on social gameplay and encouraging user generated content, the game will be unveiled in the near future.
“We’re very excited to have teamed up with Bigpoint who are leaders in browser gaming,” said Phil Rogers, CEO Square Enix Europe. “This is the start of both an exciting new project and a strong relationship.”
