Xsolla, an undisputed global leader in the field of payment solutions for online games, announces that it will offer an informative session in the Business, Marketing and Management track at the 2013 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Publishing Your Game Globally: The WarZ Story will present a conversation between WarZ’s Executive Producer, Sergey Titov, and Dmitri Bourkovski, VP Global Business Development for its monetization partner, Xsolla.
The pair will give attendees a behind the scenes look on how WarZ became an overnight sensation, rapidly attaining its current status as an international hit. They will also furnish their respective insights on the highlights and lowlights associated with the zombie survival MMOG, and what it took to reach a world-wide audience. The one-hour session is scheduled to take place in Room 301, South Hall at 5:30 pm on Thursday, March 28.
“We are very pleased to present this session at GDC,” stated Xsolla CEO Aleksandr Agapitov. “While the success of WarZ may have taken quite a few people by surprise, we were confident that it was the right game at the right time, and with the right payment solution. We look forward to revealing how everything came together to make it one of one of last year’s most significant MMOG releases.”
