Sega, Team 17 and others join EA's Origin platform
EA's Origin continues to gain steam - no pun intended
EA's Origin has today added several more partners to its line-up of third parties, as Sega, Team 17, Rebellion, Kalypso and more have all agreed to bring their games to the digital platform. This latest round of signings brings the number of publishers and developers on Origin to 35.
Sega will bring its popular PC titles to Origin, starting with Total War Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai, which is now available for pre-order on EA's platform. More PC titles from Sega and others will be coming to Origin in the "coming months."
"By partnering with publishers like Sega, we're able to bring even more of the industry's best games to players on Origin," said Craig Rechenmacher, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for Origin at EA. "With 11 million registered users around the world, Origin is fast becoming the destination for consumers looking for fresh new content to play with their friends."
"We're delighted to be partnering with Origin. The PC Market is continuing to grow and the prospect of offering the Total War franchise and the Sega range of PC titles to the Origin audience is very exciting," commented John Clark, UK Managing Director and PC Digital Distribution Director at Sega.
