remote control productions continues growth

Looking back at an extraordinary year 2017 with the rcp family


Munich, December 22, 2017 – In its 12th year in action, remote control productions and the rcp family have seen another twelve months of successfully expanding the business through a growing number of projects, employees as well as clients and partners.

"We've grown at a remarkable rate increasing our headcount to now more than 240 employees across the family teams.", says Hendrik Lesser, CEO of remote control productions: "The growth is also reflected in our international expansion with offices in 3 countries as well as a higher output to the market on all fronts. 2017 was clearly a level-up for us in many ways!"

Overall the rcp family welcomed 20 new clients and partners, among them NCSoft, EuroVideo, Aerosoft, Bavaria Fernsehproduktion, Carlsen and Unicef. With releases like German Developer Award Winner Angry Birds Evolution (Best Mobile Game) by Chimera Entertainment, the cross-platform game adaption of Ostwind (Windstorm) for PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch developed by Aesir Interactive or the Best of Google Play Winner in the Kids category, PetHotel from itMatters Games, rcp family games reached more players than ever peaking at well above 1.5 million daily active users.

Crunching more numbers, rcp today has published a 2017 Year-in-Review infographic. The full infographic is available on the company's Imgur account.

"We have already lined up more irons in the fire for 2018", Lesser continues: "I would eagerly love to share today what we're going to announce. I'm confident that we will stir up the market, but now it's time for the Holiday break. I wish all our friends, partners and clients a peaceful time."
