Developer Axion Games revealed their latest publishing partnership with Axeso5 to bring their flagship massively-multiplayer online title, Rising Fire, to all 21 countries in Latin America. This opens up the opportunity to "a registered user base of over 14 million active gamers" in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. Rising Fire has been available for a couple of years now exclusively in China and playable only through Tencent's WeGame platform. This partnership marks the first step of the title outside of Chinese grounds, and it is expected to go live on Axeso5's gaming platform mid-2020.
This isn't the first time Axeso5 and Axion Games worked together to bring the latter's creations to Latin America's audience. Axion Ventures CEO J. Todd Bonner expressed his excitement and pleasure to pen another partnership with the publisher and admitted the market potential of the region.
"I am pleased to continue our publishing partnership with Axeso5 as they have been our publishing partner in the region since 2014, first with MARS 2 as well as its successor in the series, MARS: Infinite Dimensions, and now with Rising Fire. We carefully vetted all of the publishing companies in Latin America as potential publishing partners for Rising Fire and Axeso5 are clearly the most capable publishing partner in the region, and I'm confident they will be an ideal publisher for Rising Fire."
CEO of Axeso5 Cristian Schweizer followed up with words of praise on Rising Fire as a "gorgeous sci-fi" online shooter title that has the potential to perform well in the region, given the studio's support and localization efforts.
"Rising Fire is a truly satisfying shooting game. With its gorgeous sci-fi themed environments and beautifully rendered characters, Rising Fire is sure to be a tremendous success in Latin America. We are confident the game is ideally suited for this market, and with our localized service in Spanish and Portuguese of Rising Fire, Axeso5 and Axion will deliver a high-quality service to local gamers. Axeso5 has an extensive billing network in Latin America and our players are eagerly anticipating playing Rising Fire in their local languages with their local currencies."
