Nov 27, 2017 partnership Com2uS Skybound Not disclosed

Com2uS has partnered with production company Skybound Entertainment to extend its flagship IP Summoners War beyond the world of mobile games.

The partnership will see Skybound assist in creating comics, animations, and more using the Summoners War IP. Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, The Angry Birds Movie producer Catherine Winder, and Skybound CEO David Alpert will executive produce these ventures.

Com2uS established an IP Strategy Team in February 2017 to push Summoners War into mediums beyond games. The partnership with Skybound represents its first concrete step towards creating new content around the game.

A more engaging experience

"To say we are honored to work with such a prolific and acclaimed creator as Robert, Catherine and the entire Skybound team, is an understatement," said Casey Lee, CEO of Com2us USA.

"We know how passionate and committed our fans are and our partnership with Skybound will not only allow for a deeper and more engaging Summoners War experience but also strengthen the IP's brand equity."

Summoners War remains Com2uS' key performer, having cleared $1 billion in lifetime revenues back in August 2017. As well as multimedia content, the developer is also pushing the game into eSports and developing an MMO spin-off.
