Dave Pain, CEO of PQube commented:- “We’ve enjoyed working with Milestone and have seen that their titles can be very successful in the UK market. MX Mud performed well and WRC3 has been a phenomenal success at retail with over 50,000 units sold in the UK and still going strong. Key to this has been Milestone’s absolute passion for motorsport and their ability to translate that into games. Bringing together the MotoGP license with the quality of Milestone’s engine continues to raise the bar”
“We’re very proud to announce MotoGP™13. After four years, we’ve regained the license and we look forward to putting all the expertise we have developed during this time into the game. This new project will offer players the chance to experience a brand new MotoGP game that will include the most-loved features plus brand new ones”, said Luisa Bixio, Milestone Marketing and Sales Director.
Paul Serracanta, Managing Director, Commercial Department, Dorna Sports, commented: “The new version of the official MotoGP game for 2013 only serves to reaffirm Milestone as a leading company in its field. Thanks to its vast experience and efforts throughout the year we have been able to reach the point where we can proudly announce the launch of the game. We have been working together with every one of the MotoGP™ circuits to bring across every image, sound and feel in the most realistic way. Milestone also brought in the riders to participate in the design of game and give their views, which means the fans will be able to enjoy a gaming experience of the highest level.”
Developed by Milestone studio, MotoGP™13 is scheduled for release in 2013 for PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Vita, Xbox 360®, and Windows PC.
