Fox and Vivendi Join Together

   Fox Interactive and Vivendi Universal Games announced today an agreement that allows Vivendi to publish and distribute every Fox Interactive game that is currently in development and are not assigned to another company. A few of the games included are from Fox franchises, including The Simpsons, X-Files, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

   "Though we've had great success over the years with both home-grown and acquired properties, this deal presents terrific opportunities and the best business model for our content," said Steve Bersch, president of Fox Interactive. "We feel certain that our games, and the Fox properties they are based upon, will be best served through this expanded relationship with Vivendi Universal Games, which is a leading player in the PC world and a rapidly emerging force in the console business. We have some fantastic games coming and believe this is the right step toward helping them reach their greatest potential in the marketplace."

   "Vivendi Universal Games and Fox Interactive have enjoyed a successful and mutually rewarding relationship since 2001," said Luc Vanhal, president & COO, VU Games, North America. "Fox's top-flight development talent has consistently delivered on a broad range of industry-leading franchises. This is the type of broader affiliation with Fox we've been pursuing since the beginning of our business relationship and we are now pleased to welcome Fox's development and marketing teams to the VU Games family and to add a flight of new Fox titles to the VU Games portfolio of brands."
