Codemasters Hands European Publishing Duties to Namco Bandai

Posted on February 11, 2013 AT 05:16am

U.K.-based Codemasters has announced that beginning with GRID 2 it will be freezing its own publishing and distribution services in favor of a partnership with Namco Bandai.

GRID 2 is just one of a number of titles that will be distributed by Namco Bandai across Europe as part of the new deal. The developer said that the agreement “encompasses major forthcoming games to be published by Codemasters on its Codemasters Racing label, including as yet unannounced titles.”

“As the dynamics of interactive entertainment change and evolve, then the shift to collaborative support via structured agile partnerships is the way forward,” said Codemasters chief executive Rod Cousens.
