Nitro Games has signed a new deal with industry-leading free-to-play game company Wargaming World Limited (“Wargaming”). This agreement is the next step in the co-operation, following earlier game development agreements between the parties. With this agreement, Wargaming assigns to Nitro Games the Worldwide (excluding China) publishing and further development rights to Runegate Heroes. The game is currently in soft launch stage.
