NetEnt Signs License Agreement for “The Planet of the Apes”
As it usually happens at the beginning of the year, big slot casino software producers launch numerous new projects one after the other. Playtech revealed this year that they’ve signed with Warner Bros entertainments. Microgaming are making the Jurassic World slot and The Phantom of the Opera.
The leading provider of digital gaming solutions NetEntertainment’s studios signed a contract for the exclusive use of franchise “The Planet of the Apes” with the company 20th Century Fox Consumer Products for the development of The Planet of the Apes slot machine.
About The Planet of the Apes slot
The partnership agreement covers all aspects of the brand “The Planet of the Apes”, which history goes back to more than 50 years.
The Planet of the Apes slot from NetEnt will present a multimedia brand in the online gaming industry for the first time and will undoubtedly cause a stir among film fans and players.
The release of the slot machine is scheduled for the second half of 2017, and it will offer stunning graphics and unique game technology that will present the famous brand at the proper level.
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, said: “The Planet of the Apes” is one of the largest franchise in the world that has never been used in the world of gaming. With such a rich history of the brand, it is bound to cause sincere emotions in everyone who grew up on those movies, which perfectly agrees with the concept of the formation of NetEnt diverse and broad gaming audience.”
Why there is such a choice
It is a common trend that the software creator prefers some kinds of genres to base their slots on. Let’s take Playtech for example. They usually create games on the basis of the films that are currently popular. Just remember The Avengers game or Iron Man 3 slot.
Microgaming mainly takes some current fad of films. Do you remember their so-so Bridesmaids and Dark Knight Rises jackpot?
Concerning NetEnt, they are evident fans of classics as their choice is mainly in favor of this genre. Just to name their Dracula Touch or Invisible Man slot, and do not forget their Aliens slot machine that was released not long ago.
