Trion Launching DRM-Free Digital Gaming Store, Glyph
In a statement, Trion said it will put its proven technology to good use with Glyph.
“In the past three years, we’ve reached more than 10 million gamers, supported 25 million transactions, and more than 50 million downloads have happened across our network,” CEO Scott Hartsman stated. “This shows that we’ve got an audience of dedicated gamers along with the technology and tools to meet their appetites. We’re interested in making it easier for our players to discover games and developers we want to support, while boosting visibility for those developers in the increasingly crowded world of PC digital gaming.”
PC gamers might recall that Trion announced a similar initiative, Red Door, way back in 2011. Red Door was set to launch alongside Trion’s MMORTS, End of Nations, but that original digital platform appears to have experienced the same fate as EoN. There may have been no saving End of Nations, but it appears Red Door will be salvaged and repackaged as Glyph.
No release date yet, but Trion says it has already signed “select developers” to bring their games to Glyph and it plans to reveal its full slate of launch partners in the coming weeks. If you’re a dev interested in hopping on board, contact Trion at firstname.lastname@example.org.
