Disney wants to sell FoxNext: better licensing to make money with gaming | Rumor
Disney is reportedly already trying to sell FoxNext, the division dedicated to the development/publication of video games where you become the owner with the colossal acquisition of 21st Century Fox. FoxNext was founded in relatively recent times - about 2 years ago, and focused on the development of games free-to-play based on the most profitable intellectual property at its disposal. Among these, the Marvel Strike Force was one of the most important achievements, with approximately $ 150 million of revenue in the first year of availability. In machining there will also be games based on Avatar and the Alien (according to the little information leaked should be a shooter MMO).
The gaming industry is in continuous expansion, thanks also and especially to the casual game F2P on mobile. Disney has discussed internally the opportunity to stay involved by keeping FoxNext, but in the end, the chief executive officer Bob Iger has preferred to let lose. Historically, the combination of Disney-the game has made great sparks in the past. In 2016, the giant entertainment has closed the line of interactive toys Infinity and has closed several studies of the production of video games.
Of course, Disney continues to make a lot of money with video games, giving license its intellectual property: one of the most obvious is that Electronic Arts has with the brand Star Wars. The new title of Jedi Fallen Orders should arrive in November of this year (HERE's the last video gameplay extended). The declaration of Iger pronounced during a video conference in February 2019 does not leave space to interpretation: "we have simply decided that the best strategy for Disney and the gaming is licensing, not publishing".The only real Notes?
