Digital distribution service to feature current and upcoming titles

Codemasters has entered into an exclusive deal with GameTap for digital distribution of its games.

The deal will see Codemasters’ recent offerings DiRT and Overlord available for download, with forthcoming titles Clive Barker’s Jericho and Turning Point: Fall of Liberty to be placed on the service the same day as their retail releases.

"As Codemasters further expands in North America, GameTap was an obvious choice in delivering our award-winning content to a new audience," explained Codemasters president of publishing Geoff Mulligan.

"We have secured retail success and this new partnership with GameTap is the next step to expanding our business through subscription play and ad revenue."

Turner executive VP Stuart Snyder added: "Codemasters is a forward thinking company with great current and upcoming titles that are exactly the kind of games our subscribers want to play. Making games available to play day and date with the retail release to our subscribers is a top priority for our business."
