“Stillfront Group continues to deliver in line with our strategy, by showing continued high user loyalty with our existing games and, both organically and through acquisitions, adding new games to our portfolio that are driving significant player growth. Simutronics is continuing to tweak SIEGE: Titan Wars to drive growth and user loyalty beyond the large user influx at launch. Bytro Labs is transforming Call of War into a true multi-platform title on browser, mobile and Steam, while eRepublik Labs are getting ready to launch War and Peace: Civil War, another promising new game,” Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group comments.
