The agreement fits perfectly with our strategy of continuous improvement of the quality and the potential returns of our portfolio.”
CEO of Remedy Entertainment, Tero Virtala, said “We have a strong vision of what P7 should be. 505 Games brings into this partnership experience and competences that help us successfully make this vision become reality together. Remedy is also investing in P7 and is deeply committed to creating an unique gaming experience that will keep the players engaged and playing for a long time to come.
