Koch Media obtains World Championship Snooker rights

Koch Media has entered into an agreement to distribute Blade Interactive's World Snooker Championship worldwide

Koch Media has entered into an agreement to distribute Blade Interactive's World Snooker Championship worldwide.

The next game in the series, now officially named "WSC Real - Season 2008," is being developed by Blade Interactive for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii, DS, and PC. It will be released in April 2008 to coincide with the World Snooker Championship.

"We're very proud to have been chosen by Blade to handle this esteemed license," said Koch MD Craig McNicol.

"We are also particularly pleased that Blade have recognised our position on the world market, which fits perfectly with developers who wish to take the monolithic step to being publishers of their own IP."

As previously reported, Blade Interactive recently decided to publish its own titles starting with the World Snooker Championship franchise which has sold over 2 million units worldwide.
