Blueprint Gaming has announced the launch of its new third-party game development programme.
The brand new service will allow independent game studios to develop and release their content through Blueprint Gaming’s remote gaming server (RGS). The games released through the platform will benefit from Blueprint’s player reach across multiple jurisdictions.
According to reports, slot developer BB Games will be the first firm to sign up with the programme. Through the service, BB Games will be added to Blueprint Gaming’s existing portfolio and will launch with Blueprint’s vast operator network including SkillOnNet, White Hat Gaming, and many others.
In addition to this, Blueprint Gaming and BB Games will reportedly collaborate on future video slots to create new gameplay experiences for gamers around the world.
The news follows Blueprint’s acquisition of Livewire and Project, and it comes as the game provider looks to extend its player reach while boosting its game production, design and development.
Speaking about the agreement in a statement, Sior Walbyoff, the Head of Business Development at Blueprint Gaming, said: “This is a really exciting new programme that will grand independent studios a huge opportunity to cut through the noise and have their content accessible to operators across the globe through our RGS.
“We’re delighted to have BB Games on board and are looking forward to working with the team to develop fun and engaging slots that incorporate features never seen before.”
Jason Bradbury, the CEO of BB Games, added: “To be given the chance to partner up with a supplier as renowned as Blueprint is a testament to the innovation and passion that goes into every game idea we have at BB Games. I think the market will be pleasantly surprised with the inventive nature of this collaboration when our first game is released later this year.”
While launching its new development programme, Blueprint has also been developing and launching its own video slots, many of which are based on Big Time Gaming’s critically acclaimed MegaWays game engine.
The firm’s most recent release is Rick And Morty MegaWays, a video slot based on the popular Adult Swim animated show of the same name. Rick And Morty MegaWays isn’t the only branded slot Blueprint has released as the firm launched its VIZ game, based on the comic magazine of the same name, earlier this year.
Other releases from Blueprint Gaming include the fantasy-themed Mighty Griffin MegaWays as well as another new take on the classic Diamond Mine slot with its Diamond Mine Extra Gold MegaWays, which includes additional special features not included in previous iterations.
Over the next few months, Blueprint Gaming is expected to launch a plethora of new casino games while also adding additional independent studios to its development programme.
