Everyone is lining up to join Origin's growing list of publishers. Today's new crowd includes: Team 17 Software, who publish Worms and Alien Breed; Rebellion, publishers of Sniper Elite and NeverDead; Kalypso Media, whose biggest titles include Tropico, Patrician, and Disciples; and finally Sega, publishers of Total War and a number of titles featuring a small blue hedgehog that runs really fast.
Perhaps due in part to Mass Effect 3's unbounded success, and its Origin exclusivity on PC, Sega is seeing dollar signs in its new Origin partnership. Says John Clark, UK Managing Director and PC Digital Distribution Director at Sega:
"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."
Expect to see titles from each of these publishers start showing up on Origin over the coming months.
