Platform for Developers
In the gaming industry, with the advancement of technology barriers in creating a game are nearly vanished. But there are still barriers in way of making a successful gaming business. There are few games which get popularity as fortnite owns but Xsolla still supports them from beginning. They help game developers to get popularity of their games and also to be played and paid worldwide. With their product portfolio they provide developer tools, infrastructure and resources to sell and promote their games.
“I started the organization alone in Russia over 13 years ago. I did everything myself. When I needed a website, I built it. When I needed a legal contract, I created one. When I needed a logo, I designed it. Naturally, and thankfully, we have come a long way since then, and I am happy to have a strong team to support me. Today, privately held and headquartered in Los Angeles, with offices and R&D centers throughout Europe and Asia, Xsolla has 270+ employees serving more than 1100 developers on over 2,000 projects around throughout the globe. Every day we are in constant communication with the smartest people in the world — game developers — who build rocket ships for fun. “
Games that become key to its success
They promote a game to become a massive hit and give developers traffic on their game. They work to increase the number of players for a game and also the number of times a developer gets paid for a game. As any game could be a massive hit and reason for success for both developers and their company so they put equal efforts for each game. No doubt, to become a successful game, it needs effort of both its developers and the medium which makes it popular. Fortnite was the biggest success of their company. This is what Xsolla say about it.
“We signed Fortnite when the game was first developed by a very small team in Warsaw. This was before Epic Games, so we’ve been there since the beginning. We then worked Epic to bring Fortnite to the global market like we would any other game, as you never know what will become a massive, breakout hit. We are thrilled to see so many gamers — young and old — really embrace the game.
We have also had great success with other key partners and games, such as Perfect World, a 3D adventure and fantasy MMORPG; Neverwinter, based on the D&D classic; Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds from Blue hole. Others we work with include Nexon, Bigpoint Games (Germany) and a Phoenix Point by Snapshot Games (Bulgaria).”
Xosalla’s Demand for Games
These days, there is endless production of game in the market, but not all of them gain success and profit. So there is a great competition among them. And it follows the rule of survival of the fittest. And what makes a game fit for survival is innovation. Innovation comes from exploring things, taking risks and taking care of client’s needs and following trends. This is what Xsolla advised for making a game best for survival.
“Everyone knows that content is king. Our industry is rapidly changing and we must stay current of the economic, political and technical establishments within our developing world. For me, this means constantly adding and integrating new solutions to address our developer, partner and customer needs.
Innovation comes from everywhere and everyone. My process for innovation? First off, I’m a gamer. I observe. I look. I listen. I play. I listen to my customers, developers, gamers and my employees. I research. I look at the trends. I strategize. I consider. I test. I then create a process and put things into action. I don’t mind failing as long as we’ve tried our best to create and innovate for our partners.
Since then, Xsolla has aligned with the likes of Valve, Twitch, Ubisoft, Epic Games, and PUBG Corporation, and expanded our portfolio of services to include payments, e-commerce, antifraud, analytics, customer support, content optimization and delivery, authentication and more.”
