eRepublik Labs, part of Stillfront Group, soft launches eRepublik.com on mobile
On the 11th anniversary of the eRepublik.com franchise, eRepublik Labs is bringing its first game to mobile. eRepublik Mobile will be available in open beta on the Google Play early access program. The game is expected to be in soft launch for several months.
eRepublik.com was the first game that eRepublik Labs launched back in 2007. Over 10 million people played the game over its close to 11 years history. The game in its browser version has a very dedicated community with an MAU of 35000 players and has seen its revenues grow this year. eRepublik Mobile will work in synch with the browser version of the game meaning both existing and new players will be able to play cross platform now.
“eRepublik.com was the start of our adventure and was our largest game until it was overtaken by our mobile game releases such as War and Peace. It is now one of our 5 core Live games and although it is not the largest one, it has a very dedicated community and extremely unique gameplay. We are thrilled to be bringing it to mobile both for the existing community and for new players that want to try something completely unique and different on mobile”, says Alexis Bonte, co- founder and CEO of eRepublik Labs.
“eRepublik.com is a great example of our evergreen games strategy, we are happy to see this 11-year old game brought to mobile audiences. We have seen how successful that ‘platform extension’ strategy can be in our other studios such as Bytro or Goodgame”, says Jörgen Larsson, CEO of Stillfront.
