Halo Goes Mobile
Posted on 1-Oct-2005 20:10. | Tags Filed under: News.

In-fusio will publish mobile applications based on the Halo franchise created by Bungie Studios, one of Microsoft's first party game development studios. Extending an existing partnership with Microsoft, the agreement establishes In-fusio as the worldwide mobile publisher for one of the most valuable properties in interactive entertainment.

The multi-year deal gives In-fusio rights to develop and publish downloadable and embedded mobile applications based on the Halo universe.

To date, more than 14.3 million copies of Xbox and PC titles based on this franchise have been sold. The most recent game accounted for US$125 million in sales within the first 24 hours of release at retail, tallying the biggest single day gross for any type of entertainment property.

To date, fans worldwide have logged more than 430 million hours playing Halo online via the Xbox Live service. The brand also includes toys, books and the recently announced Universal Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox feature film.

IN-FUSIO currently distributes its existing portfolio of more than 90 downloadable games and entertainment applications for mobile phones via 130 wireless carriers and portals worldwide. The company's publishing network reaches more than 50 countries in North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Africa and more than 17 million people uses the company's applications and services.

The first Halo based mobile applications will be available later this year via carriers in North America with other territories to follow shortly thereafter.
