Gameloft vows to deliver 'action packed' future for Windows Phone

Gameloft vows to deliver 'action packed' future for Windows Phone
Few in number are the mobile platforms Gameloft hasn't thrown its weight behind, but with the unveiling of Asphalt 7: Heat for Windows Phone comes a statement of intent.

The mobile publishing giant claims a total of 12 big Gameloft releases are currently bound for Windows Phone 8 handsets, with the company vowing to deliver an "action packed future" for Microsoft's platform.

12 of the best

"Asphalt 7: Heat is the first of 12 titles from Gameloft to launch on the Windows Phone 8 platform and offers the very first real-time multiplayer experience optimised to take advantage of the Xbox ecosystem and services," detailed the publisher.

"Additional titles in the Gameloft line-up, which offer a diversified portfolio of immersive and social experiences for fans of every game genre, are due to launch within the coming weeks – promising an action-packed future for the Windows Phone platform."



These aren't the first Gameloft games to launch on Microsoft's mobile OS, of course, though the launch of key IP on Windows Phone 8 is being trumpeted rather more loudly than those that hit its predecessor.

The full list of games includes Asphalt 7: Heat, The Amazing Spider-Man, N.O.V.A 3, The Dark Knight Rises, Order & Chaos Online, Uno & Friends, Kingdoms & Lords, Ice Age Village, Real Football 2013, Six Guns, Shark Dash and Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour.

The news comes as the Windows Phone Store passes 130,000 apps, with Gameloft having also released notable titles on the recently launched BlackBerry 10 platform.
