The doors at one of the largest gaming exhibitions throughout the year have just closed after three days of intense industry talks, discussion forums and ultimately much increased interest and visitor numbers. Netent was present as usual and displayed on a large booth their latest game creations, innovations as well as allowing a sneak peek into the future of their games releases.
All major and minor, new and established gaming providers, big and small players of the industry gathered for three days to showcase their latest developments, take part in podium discussions and industry workshops and most of all have some fun with all the gaming gadgetry on display.
Two press releases stood out from all the banter and chatter, both related to Netent signing exclusive license deals with some highly interesting companies.
Netent signs license deal with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products
And this specifically to exclusively license the “Planet of the Apes” film franchise for online casino gaming. This means nothing less than that we will soon see the release of a slot based on the extremely popular and successful movie franchise. NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes slot is set to create a huge buzz among film fans and players when it is released in the second half of 2017. The game will feature stunning graphics and unique game mechanics that will bring to life the power and excitement of the brand.
Netent signs license deal with Global Merchandising Services & The Emoji Company
This is yet another exciting announcement from the Swedish studio as the Emoji movie will hit theaters this summer and Netent has planned to release the slot in Q3 / 2017 to bring to life the universally popular icons with the game’s innovative features appealing to players of all ages. Developed and designed with a mobile first approach, it will ensure a superb NetEnt gaming experience whether playing at home or on the go.
These two releases alone will certainly have gaming enthusiast buzzing, especially the Planet of the Apes fans from around the world. It looks like we will have an exciting year ahead of us.
