New US Distribution Deal for Ghost Master

Empire Interactive announced today that 'Ghost Master' is to be published in the US by Vivendi Universal Publishing. The game, which features design, script and level design by International Hobo Ltd is a highly anticipated product for next generation consoles, although no details about the game have been formally released.

Chris Bateman, Managing Director of International Hobo Ltd, said: "We anticipate that 'Ghost Master' will generate significant sales in all territories, and are proud to be involved in this remarkable game."

Empire Interactive, who developed the game and will publish it in Europe, also signed five other titles to US publisher Vivendi Universal, covering fifteen SKUs in total. Ian Higgins, CEO of Empire Interactive, said: "This deal is a major endorsement of the titles we are developing. It illustrates Empire's potential for significant growth and gives us the opportunity to challenge the larger players in the market."

Senior Vice President of Vivendi Universal Interactive Publishing North America, Philip O'Neil, added: "Empire Interactive's history of developing compelling and profitable titles for multiple platforms makes this partnership a natural fit."

'Ghost Master' is due for release early 2002.
