Gameloft announces 15 new Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 games


"Asphalt 8" is among the 15 Gameloft titles slated for release on Windows or Windows Phone in the next year.

Gameloft plans to bring a total of 15 games to Microsoft's Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 operating systems within the next year, marking the most recent push by Microsoft to bring well-known titles to its tablet and smartphone platforms.

Though a complete list of the games slated for release wasn't provided, Gameloft announced Asphalt 8: Airborne" and "Dungeon Hunter 4" will be the first titles released simultaneously for the Windows platforms this fall by the company. Other Gameloft titles scheduled for release on Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 before the end of the year include "Despicable Me: Minion Rush," "Six Guns," "Total Conquest" and "Uno & Friends."

At least some of the games will feature cross-platform play between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, though the game studio didn't say if all 15 games would feature the capability.

Gameloft's announcement follows a commitment made last year to bring 12 of its most popular games to Windows Phone, including "Asphalt 7: Heat," "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour." The game studio has released 17 games for Windows Phone, though "Shark Dash" remains its only Windows game released so far. Despite the development, Gameloft and other studios typically release games for Windows Phone well after their releases on Android and iOS.

I mostly only buy games when it is Xbox enabled. I really enjoyed Asphalt 7 and looking forward to Asphalt 8 on both phone and Laptop.

Developers are starting to catch on, the Windows Store could very well be like Xbox arcade. Played Driftmania 2 with my 360 controller on the pc and I like it.

I'm really hoping so. XBLA had some great games. I think "Spartan Assault" is very similar to an XBLA game, and I hope more Metro games are of similar quality.

"Gameloft and other studios typically release games for Windows Phone well after their releases on Android and iOS."

And like the rest of the studios, they don't bother with prompt updates to their games leaving some basic things such as achievements in their Xbox branded titles broken.. that's why we buy at a premium them right? of course there is no refunds on Microsoft's store...

Yeah, it is a problem. There's tons of games and apps I refuse to buy because they haven't even been updated with Windows Phone 8 features such as 720p screens.

Are you feeling alright? Are you lonely or something?

I don't get your ridiculous attitude and relentless negativity, it's so boring.

if i'm not wrong, yes.

You're wrong. Dungeon Hunter 4, Despicable Me: Minion Rush, Six Guns and Uno & Friends are already out on iOS, and Android too if I'm not mistaken. Six Guns, in fact, came out on iOS and Android in 2011. Total Conquest is coming out soon. Asphalt 8 is coming out tomorrow on iOS and Android. Basically, those games mentioned above either have been or will be out on iOS and Android quite some time before their release on WP.

Its just A sign that gameloft doesn't know what to do and they are acting like Nokia did, signing a contract with the devil.
There is no going back for them from this point
