[Special Force] Licensing Renewed in Taiwan and Thailand

If you were thinking about publishing Special Force in Taiwan or Thailand, sorry it’s taken. Dragonfly, a developer company of famous FPS Special Force, renewed its licensing agreements with current partners; True Digital Entertainment (TDE) for Thailand and Wayi International Digital Entertainment for Taiwan.

TDE has been publishing Special Force since 2006 as attracting more than 18,000,000 users (50,000 CCUs) and making 19 billion Won (or US$14.6 million) from the game last year. (No wonder Dragonfly extended the contract.) The arrangement will let TDE enjoy the success 5 more years.

As for Wayi, they only got 2 more years out of the contract renewal. Wayi has been publishing the game since 2007 and reached 5,000,000 users and 20,000 CCUs. The company made 3.7 billion Won (or US$2.5 million) from the game in 1H09.
