Game development studio Evoplay Entertainment has launched in the UK after announcing a partnership with gaming technology platform and service provider Nektan.

Under the terms of the deal, Evoplay’s portfolio will be launched in the UK market with a series of titles set to be distributed via E-Lite, Nektan’s content distribution platform. Players in the UK will be able to experience the “industry’s first ever mass market 3D and VR games” including Necromancer, Elven Princesses, Epic Gladiator and Candy Dreams.

Evoplay Entertainment’s chief business development officer Vladimir Malakchi, commented on the deal: “We are thrilled to be joining the UK’s legendary igaming community in a partnership with one of the industry’s most established businesses, Nektan. 

“UK players are some of the world’s most demanding, and we can’t wait to introduce them to our catalogue of cutting-edge, innovative content and see what they make of it.”

This latest deal for Nektan reiterated its claims at the end of March to focus on international expansion as a gaming technology and content provider as the firm addressed continued change during the first six months of the financial year.

With the UK B2C operations having been classified as discontinued in the current and prior periods following a sale to Grace Media, a global outlook has been adopted which sees platform and integrated technology partnerships entered across Europe, Africa and Asia.

Gary Shaw, CEO of Nektan, added on the firm’s latest deal: “We are delighted to welcome Evoplay Entertainment aboard, and being the first to bring its fresh, pioneering portfolio to the UK is a real plus.

“We have no doubt that this is the start of a long and fruitful commercial relationship and are sure that Evoplay Entertainment’s immersive catalogue will prove to be a hit with players and operators alike.”
