Passport Game Studio products will be sold exclusively through parent GTS Distribution beginning December 1, the company announced. Passport is the U.S. publisher of games including Tokaido, CV, Kingsport Festival, and Quantum.
“We have offered our distribution partners to have us fulfill our November releases (Antiquity, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, and Entropy Worlds Collide) during that timeframe, in an effort to keep the transition as simple as possible for retailers during that time,” Scott Morris, President of Passport Game Studio and GTS Director of Business Development, Gaming told ICv2.
