MUMBAI: UTV True Games is planning major expansion in game development and publishing operations. True Games will begin operating under the name UTV True Games as part of its commitment to UTV Software Communications, which holds a majority strategic stake in the company.
All of the company’s management, operations and development remain in place. The company is headquartered in Austin, Texas where it has a product development studio in addition to its publishing operations. The company also has a development studio in Beijing, China.
"When I first started True Games, I had a vision of where I wanted to take this company. The strides we have made in building internal development teams in both Austin and Beijing, while building one of the industry’s most comprehensive digital publishing platforms has exceeded even my expectations and much of that is due to the support that we have received from UTV. We have had a great working relationship with them and it is an honor to become a part of the UTV brand," said True Games Interactive founder and CEO Jeff Lujan.
UTV True Games will pursue and utilize the talents of external development studios such as its partner, Petroglyph, who is developing the mythology-based game, Mytheon. UTV True Games has also recently signed another unannounced project with a leading online game developer.
