Swarmio launches a gaming platform in the Philippines

Globe Telecom operates one of the largest fixed broadband networks in the Philippines, serving over 85 million mobile and broadband customers.

In November last year, Vijai Karthigesu, CEO of Swarmio, said Ability that there was a “huge opportunity” for telecom operators to explore opportunities to venture into the game.

To do this, he said telecom operators must diversify their products to include services such as games.

And lately, Swarmio has expanded its partnerships with operators, especially in Asia.

The agreement between the gaming company and Globe results from Swarmio’s partnership with TM Wholesale which will see the Ember platform deployed across Asia.

“This is an important and mutually beneficial partnership that provides Globe with the opportunity to gain a strong competitive advantage by engaging and monetizing the large and growing gaming community in the Philippines,” Karthigesu said.

“At the same time, it will allow Swarmio to engage directly with over 85 million Globe customers and deliver a top-notch gaming and community experience.”

The Philippines currently generates nearly $840 million in gaming revenue and has a 10% annual growth rate according to data from Newzoo.

The region has a 9% year-over-year growth rate and adds around five million new players each year.

Revenue generated from subscriptions and profits will be shared between the three companies involved.
