Bytro Launches Call of War Tablet Version
Stillfront’s studio Bytro Labs today announces the release of a tablet version of Bytro’s success Call of War. Call of War is Bytro’s best performing war strategy game which has had revenues of more than 40 MSEK since its launch in May 2015 until September 2016. Call of War allows strategy game fans to command troops, research secret weapons, and conquer enemies in a war strategy online game in tank battles, naval warfare, and air combat. Call of War is expected to have more than 160,000 monthly average users (MAU) in November.
Significant investments have been made into the technical platform in order to offer Call of War gamers an exciting cross platform gaming experience without app downloads on iOS and Android tablets. Further investments are being made in order to also make Call of War available on mobiles. As Call of War is built on Bytro’s successful SUP-engine, other titles based on the SUP-engine, such as Supremacy 1914, Thirty Kingdoms and New World Empires can benefit from the investments made in the tablet version of Call of War.
