We’re really excited and proud to say that we enter the new year working closely with Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group on their video game initiative and specifically on their upcoming game Wanted: Weapons of Fate.
We originally paired with Uni right before E3 last year to give Wanted: Weapons of Fate a proper announcement and first showing. In only a week of work managed to secure a full slate of meetings, solid first-look coverage and big, coordinated exclusives with both IGN and Game Informer.
Since E3, we’ve continued to work alongside Universal in a new role – overseeing the publisher’s PR work from a licensor perspective. This is a true role reversal for us as we are used to being in-house and working to meet the expectations of our licensors.
MavPR has a history with Universal going back to Matt’s days at Sierra launching Scarface: The World is Yours — a successful pairing which turned out to produce the biggest launch in the company’s history, with the game selling nearly 4 million units worldwide.
It’s especially rewarding for us to be able to continue our working relationships across projects. We always strive to build long-lasting partnerships with our clients, and Universal has been exceptional to work with.
