British PC publisher Digital Jesters is planning to expand its operations into North America, with a launch for popular fantasy sports title Chaos League due to be launched there in December.

Following on from a year of successful operations in the UK, the relatively new publisher has signed a distribution deal with Take Two for Chaos League in America, and undoubtedly plans further titles down the line.

"This is a further step to establishing Digital Jesters as a major global player," according to financial director Terry Malham. "From the off, we've had aspirations to join the publishing elite - but we're taking considered steps in order to achieve our ambitions. The US operation adds a further string to our publishing bow, and we'll be looking to sign deals with developers to release their titles across an increased number of territories."

Chaos League is a strategy-focused title which puts the player in charge of a team in a brutal fantasy sport. The game performed well in the UK on its release, climbing into the upper reaches of the PC charts, and will be launched in the USA at a $39.99 price point.
