The launch of MTN Arcade is a great example of our ability to deliver innovative platforms for our partners.

For the past 20 years, Gameloft has been working together with over 330 global distribution partners to bring its games to over 150 countries in the world. To honor this anniversary and reinforce the company’s commitment to allow everyone to play, Gameloft unveils today Gameloft Business Solutions, a new identity for this line of business.

Subscription-based business models are increasingly trending in the market. We have a longstanding relationship with Gameloft, and we were looking for new ways to add value to our offers. Their expertise in the mobile ecosystem naturally led us to entrust them with our subscription offer management.
