US Release Date for GTR is certain
10TACLE STUDIOS enter into a co-publishing agreement with Viva Media
Darmstadt, Germany, April 18th, 2005: Starting May 3rd, the "GTR - FIA GT Racing Game" can be found on the shelves of outlets all over North America. Recently started in Europe with major success, the publisher 10TACLE STUDIOS AG, the developer Simbin, and US co-publisher Viva Media are looking forward to the release of the official game of the international FIA GT Series in the USA with excitement. "We are absolutely certain that our market will receive GTR with great enthusiasm. After all, for a long period of time the championship was dominated by powerful American Muscle Cars such as the Dodge Viper or the Saleen SR-7," confirms Carlo Voelker, CEO Viva Media, pointing out the large potential of the exceptional title. A collaboration between the New York-based company and well-known US distribution partners guarantees a nationwide availability of the game; the partner is managing together with 10TACLE on-site marketing and PR campaigns.
Frank Holz, Director Marketing & Sales, 10TACLE STUDIOS AG, is delighted with the positive resonance: "The first feedback is already overwhelming; US-American media were more than excited about the high degree of realism never attained so far. The game received appreciation and many compliments, and the high demand was clearly visible in an initial preorder campaign over the Internet. With Viva Media we also have found a strongly dedicated partner supporting us, with their long-time know-how and strong distribution power, in the marketing of GTR in the USA."
