Gameye signs more titles to its multiplayer matchmaking game service
Gameye has signed deals with R8 Games and Toadman Interactive to bring two more multiplayer games into its business of creating matchmaking services for multiplayer online games.
Rotterdam, The Netherlands-based Gameye is adding Jagex’s Block N Load and R8 Games’ Pacer racing title to its portfolio of customers using its multiplayer matchmaking technology.
Gameye started in the esports sector, deploying multiplayer game sessions as close to the player as possible, with clients like Battlefy, Toornament, and Plair.gg. Now Gameye has moved on to work with game studios directly, implementing Gameye technology in the early stages of game development.
Having built a close relationship with PC, console and mobile games powerhouse Toadman Interactive over the last years, Gameye has been hosting their hit game Block N Load, which has engaged more than 3.5 million players worldwide, for over half a year now.
Andreas Jonsson, chief technology officer of Toadman Interactive, said in a statement that Gameye delivers a cost-efficient game hosting solution with a wide reach, resulting in a better experience for players.
Meanwhile, R8 Games will run its new combat racer game Pacer on Gameye’s scalable infrastructure.
Steve Iles, studio manager at R8 Games, said in a statement that building a fun and stable online multiplayer experience for Pacer was hugely important and the company chose Gameye because of its focus on providing low latency infrastructure.
Sebastiaan Heijne, CEO of Gameye, said in a statement that the goal is to provide gamers with the best multiplayer experience out there by working closely with the studios making the games.
