Motiga and Microsoft have announced a partnership where Motiga’s upcoming title, Gigantic, will be published onto the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC later this year.
Gigantic sees a team of five players fight fantasy battles alongside a five-story-tall guardian monster. It will be a free-to-play title and will release as a launch title for Windows 10 and on Xbox One simultaneously. Motiga CEO Chris Chung stated:
It’s gratifying to see our partners at Microsoft express the same enthusiasm for Gigantic that Motiga and our community have felt all along. The game itself made this collaboration happen, and we can’t wait to get Gigantic in as many gamers’ hands as possible.
Motiga will get access to Microsoft’s resources and expertise, including testing/QA infrastructure for both platforms as part of the agreement of the partnership. Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer stated:
We’re thrilled to partner with Motiga to bring Gigantic to Windows 10 and Xbox One. We’re always looking for ways to bring new, innovative experiences to gamers, and Gigantic being one of the rare games that appeal to fans across multiple genres is a great example of that.
Motiga VP of Product Development James Phinney, the lead designer for iconic games StarCraft and the Guild Wars franchise also added:
The game offers a variety of heroes that map to your natural play style and gives you opportunities no matter what your gaming background. With Gigantic, we’ve worked to create a game that feels fluid and natural to play, while delivering an entirely new competitive experience.
